Re: Back to Celestial

Agreed that Stuxnet would most accurately be described as an act of sabotage. Found an interesting video about hacking and cryptography which is available for streaming on Netflix.

NOVA | Rise of the Hackers

Interesting thing about Stuxnet is that it has apparently escaped into the "wild" which means people can find it on the internet and reprogram it for their own purposes. Sort of a Pandora's Box.
