An internet security specialist says that Stuxnet, the computer malware that targeted Iran's nuclear facilities in 2010 and widely attributed to Israel and the US, has spiraled out of control and attacked a Russian nuclear plant and the International Space Station.

How bad, and what systems?
(Life support would be bad.)
There’s an article that tells you nothing more than the headline
I don’t think Israel did this, BiBi is suppose to have a meeting with Putin soon.
Gee, how did it get from an Iranian nuclear plank back to Russia?
So how would it have gotten to the Russian nuclear plant unless their network was somehow connected with the Iranian network?
/S. We better hurry and ready a space shuttle to be used to rescue the crew. Oh DAMN. We already flew the last shuttle in July 2011. Lucky we have a replacement system up and ready to go. Oh DAMN. No we don’t. Guess it’s in to the russkie escape capsule. Hmmm. Not everybody fits in just one. Are there more than one in place? Maybe they can just run malwarebytes or AVG and fix it all up.
Infected memory stick.
Gee if they could only find Stuxnet in the ObamaCare web site, then they could blame Israeli for the web site’s problems...... this would be a domestic and international win for The One!
I suspect it's exactly that: the Iranians didn't have a nuke program: they imported virtually everything - including the control systems with the software - from Russia.
I gotta believe that the way we got the bug into Iran was by first getting it into Russia. The Russians have then spread the virus around to other systems... hence the ISS as well.
That's how it got to the Space Station. But if the virus was transmitted through the network connections then it shows just who was working with the Iranians on their nuke program. Not that this should have been any big secret.
The existence of which was leaked by the 0bama administration.
An Amerocentric view is I think inappropriate. There are several governments with a much greater need to deter the Iranian nuclear program.
Show me there are Simatic PLCs on ISS and I’ll believe this.
“Show me there are Simatic PLCs on ISS and Ill believe this.”
Exactly my thoughts. I thought stuxnet affected only Siemens plc’s - Step 5 or7?
That have Windows front-ends.. and password not required...
as of may 2013 all laptops on the iss use Linux,
