Israel and the Stuxnet Virus

This story of Israel's use of a commuter virus to partially destroy Iran's centrifuges which enrich nuclear materials is a wonderful story of multi-national cooperation. As reported here, Virus attacking Iran Nuke Plants is Israel, and here, 'Israel tested Stuxnet virus on Dimona plant', the Americans, the Germans, the Brits and the Israelis worked together to pull this off.

No bad press images. No civilian casualties. But the semi-successful efforts is reported to have put time back on the clock. Net result: a pretty big win for the good guys!

I heard about the virus they implanted - didn't it change the rpm of cooling pumps or something. Nefarious deeds indeed!
