Stuxnet Virus Engineered by U.S. and Israel

A published report from the New York Times has confirmed the speculation which has surrounded the development of the Stuxnet virus: the project was a joint effort by the U.S. and Israel known as the "Olympic Games".

The U.S. worked with an Israeli team to create an early variant of Stuxnet, which was programmed to target Siemens equipment and destroy centrifuges being used to purify uranium.
