60 Minutes: #Stuxnet Worm (Why You Should Care)


(Embedded video feeds aren't resolving properly on some systems. If you don't see the video interface above, here's a direct link to launch it, manually)

Last night, 60 Minutes broadcast an excellent, in-depth analysis of the Stuxnet Worm and how it was used to infiltrate and damage the Iranian nuclear program.  Let's put politics aside for a moment (as I always try to do on this blog).  Anyone who wants (or needs) to understand how malicious code may be used to wreak havoc upon a thought-to-be-secure system should watch this video.

Particularly, pay close attention to how the worm was introduced into the facility's computers.  I guarantee, it'll be the best 15 minutes you can invest before you sit down and formulate your security plan.
