    #cyber weapon attacking a nuclear weapon   
    Stuxnet is a self-replicating computer virus that was launched by Israel and the United States against Iran for the purpose of causing the centrifuges at Natanz to spin out of control and destroy themselves, thus delaying Iran&39;s nuclear weapon program. Stuxnet is a case of a cyber weapon attacking a nuclear weapon.

    #Alex Gibney    #Zero Days   
    Alex Gibney, Director of the documentary &39;Zero Days&39;, argues that though successful, as a president, Stuxnet was dangerous. Stuxnet was an attack on critical infrastructure during peacetime. Alex argues that if the tables were turned, the US would have been within their rights to start a war.

Zero Days Cyberwar Documentary Preview

"The potential for enormous destruction and loss of life is palpable when it comes to cyberweapons," says Alex Gibney, director of the new film Zero Days, which delves into the creation, deployment, and implications of the Stuxnet virus. Stuxnet, a self-replicating cyberweapon launched by the U.S. and Israel into the Natanz nuclear plant in Iran, was an effort to thwart Iran's nuclear progress by taking control of the plant's centrifuges, spinning them until they would explode. "The reason it is hugely significant is it is the first time a computer code has crossed the threshold from the realm of cyber to the realm of the physical. So it is blowing stuff up." "It was a brilliant and elegant weapon which achieved a goal of slowing down Iran's path to being a nuclear power. However, as a precedent, it was extremely dangerous because it was an attack on critical infrastructure during peacetime. Had that been done to us we would have been within our rights to start a war." While Zero D
