The Stuxnet worm is claimed to be world’s first digital weapon. The difference being that rather than simply hijacking targeted computers and snooping around in them, its purpose was to physically destroy the equipment controlled by the computers. The worm was directed at Iran’s uranium enrichment facility at Natanz, which caused the fast-spinning centrifuges to rotate uncontrollably and tear themselves apart. This weapon wrecked intense destruction, so much so that it ruined almost one-fifth of Iran’s nuclear centrifuges.
