The Hungry Beast released a new video analyzing Stuxnet, a computer virus dubbed the first cyberweapon. It’s an interesting video, that highlights some of the key elements of Stuxnet—including its use of more than 20 zero day vulnerabilities. It does, however, leave out some important elements, such as when the first variation of Stuxnet emerged in 2009, its lack of “fingerprints” usually found on viruses, and the fact that the virus spread far beyond Iran, hitting targets globally (although its spread was possibly unintended). Regardless though, it’s an interesting video with great presentation that highlights why Stuxnet plays an important role in the emerging history of cyberwar.
