This story of the virus that destroyed Iran's nuclear centrifuges, by top cybersecurity journalist Kim Zetter, shows that the door has been opened on a new age of warfare--one in which a digital attack can have the same destructive capability as a megaton bomb dropped from an airplane.

Agree with SG. Well written, with just enough technical info to be able to understand the depths of complexity stuxnet exhibited without getting lost in the details. I liked the foot notes. Good read. I wonder how advanced current cyber warfare is today...

Ms. Zetter has done an absolutely thorough job [and in a fairly neutral tone] presenting some really crufty bagbiters [elegant cleverness in coding] without getting too technical for the lay reader! Read this and draw your on conclusions, and it is quite up-to-date, even though the publication date is 2014! [Highly impressed with this Wired magazine journalist's deeply researched companies involved in techint.]
