Western forces launch pre-emptive full scale CYBER WAR against Iran

21 year old Iranian kid retaliated on the stuxnet attack - http://cyberwarzone.com/cyberwarfare/21-year-old-iranian-hacker-think-tank-has-avenged-stuxnet-attack

 Stuxnet is a Windows computer worm discovered in July 2010 that targets industrial software and equipment.[1] While it is not the first time that hackers have targeted industrial systems,[2] it is the first discoveredmalware that spies on and subverts industrial systems,[3] and the first to include a programmable logic controller (PLC) rootkit.[4][5]

The worm initially spreads indiscriminately, but includes a highly specialized malware payload that is designed to target only Siemens Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems that are configured to control and monitor specific industrial processes.[6][7] Stuxnet infects PLCs by subverting the Step-7 software application that is used to reprogram these devices.[8]
