I think wants really important about that story was that the Stuxnet wormed its way into the PLC code and destroyed the centrifuges making fissionable material.  The attack was very direct and designed to perform a very exacting purpose.  It wasn't just a kid throwing a brick through the window, it was a spy sneaking into the facility and blowing up Iran's nuclear program.

Well that is quite scary, then! I actually like that you included some that may be lesser know.

Interesting slideshow, Rob! I bet some in the industry would like to forget about these, but it's good to remember to learn from past mistakes. Stuxnet, for example, really showed organizations that external storage and media can wreak havoc if not properly secured. I didn't even know some of these attacks happened--another good reason to make them more public. I think sometimes it behooves those in the industry to keep this stuff on the down low, but it's far better for the public to be aware of the threats that exist.
