More on Stuxnet

A couple of interesting pieces from the folks over at Kings of War.  The first, by Thomas Rid, asks some practical questions about the worm and who is possibly responsible.  The second, by David Betz, tackles some broader questions about what Stuxnet means for the future of cyberspace and warfare.  Betz closes his piece with a compelling reflection:

Still, I can’t help but think that some watershed has been passed, that Stuxnet of September 2010 will be remembered rather in the way we do the aerial bombings of civilian centres by Zeppelin airships–not as particularly strategically significant at the time but as a harbinger of what is still to come.
