The breach: Stuxnet, a computer worm, was reportedly placed into the computer systems of Iran's Natanz Fuel Enrichment Plant as early as 2008. According to published reports, Stuxnet was reportedly created by the United States and Israel as a cyber weapon designed to derail Iran's nuclear capabilities, although neither government has officially confirmed this. The Natanz plan is Iran's largest gas centrifuge uranium enrichment facility. The worm was designed to disrupt the facility's centrifuges by seeking a certain type of controlling software. However, the worm and its accompanying code were released into the rest of the world in summer 2010 via the Internet, reportedly through the computer of an engineer that had worked at the Iran plant. The worm infected thousands of PCs outside of Iran, and other networks, including that of the Chevron Corp. The release of the worm is seen by many as one of the first prominent instances of direct cyber warfare.
