Dozens of computer networks in Ukraine have been infected by an aggressive new cyber weapon called Snake, according to expert analysis.
The computer worm that targeted an Iranian nuclear plant is older than previously believed, security experts from an anti-virus company have revealed.
Security experts have identified a cyber espionage attack that apparently targeted computers in Iran, according to a report.
It is estimated that Stuxnet crippled around 1,000 of 5,000 Natanz centrifuges by spinning them at damagingly high speeds.
The origins of the cyber weapon, which some analysts dubbed `Stuxnet` after it was discovered in 2010, have long been debated.
Security companies that have investigated the new virus Flame said that it is one of the most complex threats ever seen.
Cyber war - long considered by many defence experts to be a significant threat - may never happen, a security expert says.
Stuxnet is a malicious software that targets widely used industrial control systems built by German firm Siemens.
Iran detected and thwarted a virus aimed at infecting the country`s nuclear plant system.
Report said the worm was the most sophisticated cyber-weapon ever deployed.
A mysterious halt in Iran`s
uranium enrichment activities earlier this month, as revealed
in a new report by the UN atomic watchdog, may have been due
to a cyber attack, experts suggested on Thursday.
Stuxnet virus can be modified to wreak havoc on industrial control systems around the world.
Reports say the malware was mutating and wreaking havoc with the equipment.
Spies were trying to derail Tehran`s N-programme, said Iran`s intelligence minister.
