July marks one year since the world learned of Stuxnet, the mysterious computer worm that launched the first successful cyberattack on infrastructure facilities.
Stuxnet, which crippled an Iranian nuclear-fuel processing plant, served notice that state-sponsored hackers are out there — and that everything from power grids to water supplies could be the next target.
But is that likely? Maybe not. For a number of reasons, security experts think it might be a long time before we ever see anything like Stuxnet again.
