The element written by the first group, which was activated after Stuxnet reached its target and is known as the “payload”, is very complex, well designed and effective, according to Mr Parker’s analysis. He believes this is evidence of the involvment of a major Western power or powers – potentially including Britain – because they have both the scarce cyber expertise, and access to the tightly-regulated nuclear equipment necessary to test the virus.

Scott Borg of the United States Cyber-Consequences Unit suggested that Israel might prefer to mount a cyber-attack rather than a military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities. According to Borg this kind of attack could involve disrupting sensitive equipment such as centrifuges using malware introduced via infected memory sticks: “Since the autumn of 2002, I have regularly predicted that this sort of cyber-attack tool would eventually be developed. Israel certainly has the ability to create Stuxnet and there is little downside to such an attack, because it would be virtually impossible to prove who did it. So a tool like Stuxnet is Israel’s obvious weapon of choice.” Wikipedia

South Korean prosecutors have arrested a man for disseminating pro-North Korean videos and text through social networking services, which is a criminal offence in the republic.
The 54-year-old, surnamed Cho, is charged of 63 counts of breach of the National Security Law by posting online text messages such as “Long live Kim Jong-il, the mighty sun of human beings”, local media report. His Twitter account alone had some 3,000 followers, prosecutors said. RT
Who is it Cho? How can he get 3000 followers? And I think he absolutely realize that his action gonna cause bad legislation effect on him, and he maybe gonna be end up in jail for a long term. S. Korea National Security law really ‘scrutinize’ the internet after some tense moments and North Korea’s artillery attack in November. And I think it is not a very patriotic for Cho to make that statement, especially in these moments between North and South Korea.
