The Dangerous Stuxnet Computer Virus

Liam O Murchu of Symantec, a computer security company, thinks an intelligence agency was most likely behind the computer virus Stuxnet.

General Michael Hayden, former director of the CIA, says the Stuxnet computer virus was the right way to intervene in Iran's nuclear weapons program.

Is the new computer virus Duqu the son of Stuxnet, a virus that targeted an Iranian nuclear plant? Liam O Murchu of Symantec thinks so.

Computer security expert Ralph Langner says it's likely that the Stuxnet computer worm was transmitted to its target via USB thumb drives and laptops.
