    Israel tested Stuxnet worm, says report
    New York Times cites strongest clues yet of Israel-U.S. involvement

    Computerworld - The Stuxnet worm that disrupted Iran's ability to
    enrich uranium into bomb-grade nuclear fuel was jointly created by
    Israel and the U.S., the New York Times said Saturday.

    Citing confidential sources, the U.S. newspaper claimed that Israel's
    covert nuclear facility at Dimona was used to test the worm's
    effectiveness on centrifuges like the ones Iran employs at its Natanz
    complex, which has been plagued by technical problems.

    The Times also spelled out other clues it said "suggest[ed] that the
    virus was designed as an American-Israeli project to sabotage the
    Iranian program."

    Stuxnet, which first came to light in June 2010 but may have been
    aimed at Iran as early as mid-2009, has been extensively analyzed by
    security researchers, most notably a three-man team at Symantec, and
    by Ralph Langner of the German firm Langner Communications GmbH.

    According to both Symantec and Langner, Stuxnet was most likely
    designed to infiltrate Iran's nuclear enrichment program, hide in the
    Iranian SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) control
    systems that operate its facilities, then force gas centrifuge motors
    to spin at unsafe speeds. Gas centrifuges, which are used to enrich
    uranium, can fly apart if spun too fast.

    Symantec's analysis gained credence last November after the
    International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the United Nations' nuclear
    watchdog, reported that Iran had stopped feeding uranium hexafluoride
    gas to its centrifuges at Natanz for about a week. Speculation quickly
    focused on Stuxnet as the reason for the shutdown.

    On Nov. 29, Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad admitted that a
    "limited" number of centrifuges had been affected by software he
    claimed had been installed by the country's enemies. It was the first
    time that an Iranian official had acknowledged the worm had struck its
    enrichment machinery.

    Ahmadinejad has frequently blamed Israel and the U.S. for trying to
    destabilize his regime.

    The New York Times' story amassed other circumstantial evidence that
    Stuxnet was a joint Israeli-U.S. creation.

    According to the newspaper, Siemens -- the German maker of the SCADA
    systems purportedly used by Iran -- cooperated in 2008 with the Idaho
    National Laboratory (INL) to help experts there identify
    vulnerabilities in the control systems. The lab -- located about 30
    miles east of Idaho Falls, Idaho -- is the U.S. Department of Energy's
    lead nuclear research facility.

    Also in 2008, Siemens asked the Department of Homeland Security to
    conduct a security assessment on its popular PCS 7 control systems, a
    fact highlighted in a conference hosted by the IHL and Siemens that
    year in Chicago.

    Stuxnet targeted Siemens' PCS 7 control systems and its Step 7
    software.

    Israel, meanwhile, set up an unknown number of gas centrifuges at its
    top-secret Dimona complex, then tested Stuxnet on the machines and
    their control systems, according to the New York Times. The
    centrifuges were virtually identical to the ones used by Iran.

    Wow! In a world where kids are sold by their parents into the hands of
    the underworld, treated like filth, neglected and abused daily, I find
    it difficult to see circumcision as so aweful. I'm guessing that most of
    the boys I teach have had the operation. Yet, I've taught other kids who
    had their arms broken by abusive parents, cigarettes put out on them and
    other things too horrific to mention. A little foreskin is at the fore
    of this silly thread. My son didn't even cry once (great doctor,
    though.) His was done the day after birth, though.

    Yeah, I try to choose my battles a bit more wisely.

    Of course. Israel is the tail that wags the Jew-S.A. dog.

    This is sheer nonsense. Ask any member of Mossad what goes on in the desert
    near Dimona and you will get an honest answer. The dome and surrounding
    buildings are a textile factory. There is no secret "complex" -- it is
    easily visible from the public highway. However, if you become a pest and
    ask too many questions, they may be interested in more of your opinions.
