Why would you even want a internet-connection to a nuclear-plant?

Am i the only one thinking that? :S

#1 so smart people don't have to die to shut the overloaded plant down, we don't want to waste any nuclear physicists now do we.

If its open source and it works that good, Linus Torvalds made it! >:) >:)

#2 A closed network would take care of that. It doesn't have to be connected to the internet.

The real question is WHO made this video and WHY. Seems like they're trying to scare us.

Almost looks like a commercial for Obama's plan to have us all have to use our real identities in order to go online.

How come there are so many security breaches and hacking incidents in the media these days? None of which actually cause any harm (PSN, Sony etc.) but basically frame un-identified hackers as a threat to society.
Almost feels like they're looking for a new enemy after OBL is off the radar.
The internet has really become the last bastion of free speech and is therefore
the main threat to the ruling classes and politicians.

I guess lets all panic and give up our anonymity...right? >:)

The clip got it wrong on many details that it borders on total BS.

- Stuxnets itself or its dropper does not reside in databases.
- One of the major points though is the part about Siemens: The reference of Siemens cell phone technology is total BS because the involved Siemend systems are SCADA and automation related.
- "20 times more complex than any other virus code" is a bogus statement/ While it is true that Stuxnet employs a couple of 0-day exploits its code is rather trivial. The payload is yet another matter but varies greatly from variant to variant.
- "ability to turn up the pressure inside nuclear reactors". This one got me laughing out loud. Reminds me of one the fed's accusations against Kevin Mitnick: "he can launch a nuclear missile just by whistling into a phone".
- etc. pp

#8 I couldnt agree to you more, you work your brain thats good but its not a vid to scare ppl (or maybe some :P) i think its just make all nerds happy just seeing the complexity, power and efficiency of a virus created by the elite professionals who work for the governments mentioned. And they get paid really good for that :D

Doesn't necessarily mean it was using the internet someone could have physically accomplished to spread it.

#1 you don't need the internet. All you need is someone who drops a USB-stick containing a virus inside a corporation with a closed network. Try this at your workplace. Someone will be dumb enough to plug it in his/her computer to look what's on it.

Even PLC's needs computers to be programmed, and those computers to this day have never been connected to the Internet, but they do have USB-ports (and other I/O ports). If you infect enough computers, and do it discretely (read. doesn't do anything except reproduce until it finds it's target), you'll sooner or later be in contact with any computer. The more you know about the system you want to infect, the quicker you can do this.

And I love how this video tries to blame Siemens. Iran used illegal copies of the Siemens software ffs..

#8 this video was made and aired on Australian TV on a program called Hungry Beast. Every episode they would have a scary or worrying message in a short clip like this. There are a number of their clips on this website.

These clips are all noise, confusion, misinformation and fear mongering...

I can always unplug my computer. I don't Stuxnet can do anything about that
