Zero Days :- Watch Zero Days on Youtube on Fire,Documentary detailing claims of American/Israeli jointly developed malware Stuxnet being deployed not only to destroy Iranian enrichment centrifuges but also threaten attacks against Iranian civilian infrastructure. Adresses obvious potential blowback of this possibly being deployed against the US by Iran in retaliation.The title of Alex Gibney’s new documentary about cyberwarfare has something apocalyptic about it: a digital version of the Book Of Revelations, perhaps. It’s actually a technical term relating to a sophisticated piece of weapons-grade malware developed in the last decade by the US and Israeli security services: it can begin to replicate itself immediately on being implanted. Analysts nicknamed it “Stuxnet”, though the intelligence officers themselves gave their baby the creepy codename “Olympic Games”In 2010, the Americans succeeded in installing this device at Natanz, an Iranian nuclear plant, disrupting the refinement process and causing centrifuges to spin out of control. At the time, the Iranian government irritably dismissed this as petty vandalism, but there is no doubt that for a while Stuxnet made Iran’s nuclear technicians look as clueless as Homer Simpson at the Springfield power plant, unable to work out what was going on.But the Iranians had cyberwarriors on their own payroll and hit back with malware attacks on Bank of America, among other American institutions. And the malware itself grew like a toxic worm, uncontrolled, infecting other systems, all over the world.
