We haven’t heard much about Stuxnet recently, but there has been plenty of speculation that Stuxnet was only a temporary setback for the Iranian nuclear program. The Iranians have bragged that they have even more advanced centrifuges at work now.
But this outburst by an Iranian General leads me to think Stuxnet continues to vex the Iranians, via ComputerWorld:
An Iranian military commander Saturday accused the German electronics giant Siemens with helping U.S. and Israeli teams craft the Stuxnet worm that attacked his country’s nuclear facilities.
According to the Islamic Republic News Service (IRNA), Iran’s state news agency, Brigadier General Gholam Reza Jalali laid some of the blame for Stuxnet on Siemens.
“Siemens should explain why and how it provided the enemies with the information about the codes of the SCADA software and prepared the ground for a cyber attack against us,” Jalali told IRNA.
