"One year ago a malicious software program called Stuxnet exploded onto the world stage as the first publicly confirmed cyber superweapon -- a digital guided missile that could emerge from cyber space to destroy a physical target in the real world. It took Ralph Langner about a month to figure that out. While Symantec, the big antivirus company, and other experts pored over Stuxnet's inner workings, it was Mr. Langner, a industrial control systems security expert in Hamburg, who deciphered and tested pieces of Stuxnet's 'payload' code in his lab and declared it a military-grade cyberweapon aimed at Iran's nuclear facilities."
