cyberspaceThe virus allegedly created by Israel and the U.S. to infiltrate Iran’s nuclear facility in 2012 could be more dangerous than initially believed, Ralph Langer writes for Foreign Policy.

Langer calls the first version of the two-part Stuxnet virus showed the hacking community a method for how to attack hard targets.

He wrote that that the virus was created to increase the pressure on spinning centrifuges in Iran’s Natanz plant in order to reduce its lifespan and make the control systems appear beyond the Iranians’ understanding.

Stuxnet was designed to close the isolation valves for the first two and last two enrichment stages, intending to block the outflow of gas from each affected cascade, Langer said.
