Stuxnet Threat Eliminated

Posted on: July 24th, 2012 by Tetrabyte No Comments

The Stuxnet virus has been made redundant since Siemens – the developer of industrial software models, has officially updated it’s software to prevent Stuxnet from working.

Stuxnet was discovered in 2010, when industrial manufacturers in Iran were hit by a series of problems.

The problems were later identified as a virus, and whilst no-one knows exactly who created it security experts claim that only a sophisticated government would have the resources available to create such a powerful virus.

Whilst Iran claims that it’s nuclear programme has been affected by Stuxnet, spectators are thinking that this was the main purpose of the Stuxnet virus.
