Trailrunner7 writes “As more information continues to come out about the Stuxnet worm and the vulnerabilities that it exploits, it’s becoming increasingly clear that this kind of attack may be a preview of the attacks that are likely to become commonplace in the months and years ahead. The most interesting aspect of all of this is the fact that the attackers behind Stuxnet clearly knew about the vulnerability in the Siemens WinCC system before the malware was written. That implies that the malware authors had some advance intelligence about the configuration of the Siemens software and knew exactly where there was a weakness.”
