text size A A A

In 2010, a computer worm was jointly created by the United States and Israel to cripple Iran's nuclear efforts. The worm was called Stuxnet and actually did some damage.

Once the worm entered the Natanz plant 984 centrifuges were soon taken out of service. However, since it's release the worm was leaked on the internet. Meaning any savvy hacker could get their hands on it and manipulate the code.
