Who’s behind Stuxnet?

Stuxnet is a worm that focuses on attacking SCADA devices. This is interesting on several levels.

First, we get to see all of those so-called isolated networks get infected, and wonder how that happened (here’s a clue: in 2010, isolated means in a concrete box buried underground with no person having access to it).

Then, we get to see how weak SCADA devices really are. No surprise to anyone who has ever fuzzed one.

After that, we get to theorize on who’s behind it and who is the target. What’s your guess?
