Stuxnet struck five targets in Iran, say researchers

Gregg Keizer | Feb. 11, 2011
Attacks started in June 2009, ended in May 2010, a month before anyone noticed, says Symantec

Last month the New York Times, citing confidential sources, said that the worm was a joint American-Israeli project, and had been tested on Iranian-style centrifuges at the latter's Dimona covert nuclear facility.

Symantec mapped Stuxnet's targets and timeline by analyzing more than 3,200 samples of the worm that had caused approximately 12,000 infections in the five organizations that had been attacked.

The company will publish an updated version of its "W32.Stuxnet Dossier" report on its Web site later today.
