Great article on the first real cyberwarfare- Stuxnet

Wired has a long article on a story that is out of a Tom Clancy novel- Stuxnet. Stuxnet targets industrial centrifuges, but only activated itself when a very specific configuration was found- and in this case that configuration turned out to be a facility in Iran that is enriching uranium to make nuclear weapons. No one is yet sure who is responsible for the virus, but the US, Israel, and even Germany are high on the list of suspects.
