Stuxnet is rumoured to be the first virus code of the type of a cyber weapon. There are so many rumours  about this virus and what its targets are. Keeping those rumours aside, some of the key points to consider are:

  • The source code of the Stuxnet is openly available
  • The engineering of this virus is complex as well as brilliant
  • Next generation Stuxnet clones are on its way, which is not only targeting SCADA systems
  • Now Stuxnet framework is an Open Source cyber weapon

Below are a list of Stuxnet videos I consider worth watching
