Stuxnet - World's Most Advanced Computer Virus
In June 2010, an extremely advanced computer virus was discovered lurking in the computers of everything from factories to power plants. Called Stuxnet, it was a digital weapon that is still doing damage.

The virus was created for the purpose of infiltrating the systems of Iran's enrichment facilities. By destabilizing pressure and compromising other systems the computerized attack went unnoticed for a long time. Scarily enough, this code has now been made available for free online.
