It has not received much attention in the U.S. media, perhaps because we are more concerned with our national debt spinning out of control than the spinning of Iranian centrifuges.
But news reports abroad indicate that the outgoing commander of the Israel Defense Forces may have admitted that Israel created the Stuxnet malware.
As reported by The Telegraph:
A showreel played at a retirement party for the head of the Israel Defence Forces appears to back claims that the country’s security forces were responsible for the Stuxnet cyber attack on the Iranian nuclear programme.
The video of Lieutenant General Gabi Ashkenazi’s operational successes included references to Stuxnet, a computer virus that disrupted the Natanz nuclear enrichment site last year, it was reported.
Ah, to have been a fly on the wall at that party. But the fly isn’t talking.
