I totally believe this article. We have unit's similar to the Siemens units here at work. The software is so specific it's crazy.

I remember hearing about this worm many months ago. I was impressed by it's capabilities. Worms go out indiscriminately infecting machines and causing damage, whereas this one is looking for one specific target, Iran. What is unfortunate is the same thing could infect our control systems which would spell complete disaster. If I was President I would make it a law every vital function the US be completely isolated from the internet, have no USB inputs, dvd/cd drives, and have all connections ran over encrypted taclane's.
