I'm torn as I try to sort out the ethical questions of infecting thousands of innocent computers with code that's harmless to them in order to sabotage Iran's nuclear program with a minor delay.

Embedded in Stuxnet’s code was a dossier detailing the specific technical configuration of the facility it sought. Any system that didn’t match precisely this configuration would go unharmed: Stuxnet would shut itself down and move on to the next system until it found its victim. It was clear to Langner that Stuxnet was the product of a well-resourced government with precise inside knowledge of the target it was seeking.


Wow. This is Hollywood Movie stuff.

That entire internal ethical debate did not even take me as long as it did to read your post. No harm to any system other than the specific enemy construct being targetted? No problem.

I think you're confusing ethics and morals.

I think you're confusing ethics and morals.

Do you study ethics?
No question within that realm is simple; the division between 'ethics' and 'moral's being one of them.

I think we all know that Israel created Stuxney and it is damn impressive. I only hope some of these advancements weren't used too soon.
