    The new war domain at work.

    This is cyber warfare.
    So far at its best.
    Pinpoint surgical strike dependent on, and triggered by enemies actions.
    The claim cyber weapons are to indiscriminate and cause collateral damage 
    has been dispelled, 
    Stuxnet even uses a finger print to be sure of target.

    The public vector for this potential attack is social engineering.
    Plug in an infected UBS and it spreads to networks and other UBS
    also, eventually reaching its target.

    Some info has been released about this IPR ( invisible persistent rootkit )
    methods of self defense and stealth.

    Even if you know where it hides, the exact file and you look at, read
    the file, the rootkit intercepts your request and shows you a sanitized clean 
    version of the files you are looking at, and it does this on the fly.

    It has built in artificial Intelligence, and several methods to make contact
    with the "Boss" , but it doesn't need contact, its pre-programed, looking
    for specific exact conditions on specific exact networks it has a finger
    print for the specfic target, and it has rules of engagement built in.

    If you replace the infected files over write them they are reinfected on the
    fly as your reload them.

    The persistent part has not been fully explored yet. In this area,
    it is one of the most advanced rootkits, real cutting edge craft.

    The question remains if it can be repackaged, and repurposed 
    on maybe Metasploit?
    Ralph Langner this week at the 2010 ACS Conference in Maryland predicted
     that the Stuxnet exploits will be available in Metasploit within 6 months.
    We don't think so, Attempts to repackage this will result in vaporware, pftt
    its gone.
    Its an excellent response to Iran's secret nuclear
    program, as it is context sensitive.
    If Iran stays within peaceful activities it remains
    dormant, but if they cross the line their Nuclear
    program ends, not in an explosion but in failure,
    cause, vector, actions, actors all unknown.

    And its going to be a bitch to get rid of.
    You will just NEVER be sure.
