Stuxnet Virus causes havoc at Iranian Nuclear facilities

The Stuxnet virus/worm has delayed Iran's sinister plans by months. I love this! Whoever designed this incredibly brilliant virus/worm had quite a sense of humor.


There is one clue that was left in the code that may tell us all we need to know. Embedded in different section of the code is another common computer language reference, but this one is misspelled. Instead of saying “DEADFOOT,” a term stolen from pilots meaning a failed engine, this one reads “DEADFOO7.”Yes, OO7 has returned -- as a computer worm. Stuxnet. Shaken, not stirred.
