Stuxnet: Wired but Unplugged

I've stopped maintaining Stuxnet resource pages recently, but occasionally I come across an article that adds something useful to the mix, or simply summarizes aspects of the Stuxnet story neatly and accurately.

A recent report in Wired gives the distinct impression that no-one but Symantec and Langner made any significant contributions to the body of knowledge about Stuxnet (well, there's a short reference to one of our blog articles – one of Pierre-Marc's, I think – but we did say quite a lot more than that.)

Still, there's no gainsaying the part Symantec played, especially in unravelling the Stuxnet payload, and it's that aspect that the Wired article summarizes pretty well, and it's well worth a read.
