cg09829at July 07,2016 Interesting video...a little dated since we now know or assume it was a joint venture between the U.S. and Israel to take down Iran's nuclear program or at the very least set it back several years...I'm really interested in the ICS/SCADA systems that control all of our industrial systems (e.g. power plants, dams, automobiles)...its scary to think that if we can do this to Iran then what could China and/or Russia do to the U.S.? Recommend a good book on this subject: Countdown to Zero Day: Stuxnet and the Launch of the World's First Digital Weapon by Kim Zetter...
mikebrashierat July 12,2016 This is pretty fascinating. I knew Student was sophisticated but I had no idea they stole certs to make it go undetected or that it could make the centrifuges spin faster or slower while at the same time making the local gauges and meters show normal behavior. It makes me wonder if software like this has been deployed by the governments against private companies and citizens.

Modasiyaat July 27,2016 Wow very interesting ! good that I watched this video. Its very rare that every technology used to create this Stuxnet worked exactly right. Must have been developed by the people very much deep into how OS works and ofcouce someone who knew minute technical details about the iranian plant.
kbacon5at September 04,2016 This was an excellent video and helped me understand how stuxnet worked better. There was a very interesting documentary that came to theaters this year all about stuxnet called "Zero Days". I saw the movie in the theater but from watching this Stanford video I learned even more about how stuxnet works. I thought it was very interesting how the speaker mentioned he never heard of a threat that works on windows and plcs like stuxnet and that it understood them both in depth. Also, that the default password on the plc was never changed so that they could access the plc. In the movie and in this video they mentioned that even while it was spinning the centrifuges then making them slow down it showed on the oeprators screen that everything was working normal. It is very interesting such a sophisticated attack like stuxnet exists. In the movie "Zero Days" they said stuxnet was the tip of the iceberg when it came to secret viruses created and used by governments. If that is true it is very scary since much of our daily lives depend on technology. Great video!
