The American-made Stuxnet virus has infected the International Space Station | ExtremeTech

“The virus wasn’t planted there by a species of locust-like space aliens hell-bent on revenge for a defeat at the hands of humans during a certain day of historical importance. Instead, the virus has reportedly gone rogue — or at least become too big for its creators to control. Reports state that Stuxnet is hitting nuclear plants in countries for which the virus was not originally intended, and has somehow even made its way up to space. Eugene Kaspersky, famed head of IT security at Kaspersky Labs, states that a friend who works at a nuclear plant in Russia has informed him that the virus has managed to infect the plant’s internal network, which was not connected to the internet.”
