The lessons of Stuxnet

Quoting former IDF Captain Caroline Glick:
“There's a new cyber-weapon on the block. And it's a doozy. Stuxnet, a malicious software, or malware, program was apparently first discovered in June…

Iran's industrial complexes - including its nuclear installations - are its main victims…

After it enters a network, this super-intelligent program figures out what it has penetrated and then decides whether or not to attack…

No other malware program has ever managed to move from cyberspace to the real world. And this is what makes Stuxnet so revolutionary. It is not a tool of industrial espionage. It is a weapon of war….

like every other major new weapons system introduced since the slingshot, Stuxnet creates new strengths as well as new vulnerabilities for the states that may wield it.”
The world has entered a new age.
