Stuxnet Threat Eliminated
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.
