MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (05.16.13)
Think of something else,yah?Sarah of USA/ISRAEL had a lot to do with Stuxnet and she kept on moaning about it in almost all her talk-back.Sarah,it is stuck neck for the despatcher,isn't it?
3. How dare you address a post directly at me
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (05.16.13)
You do not have the credentials to even comment on this web-site. Who are you to try and make a joke at my expense. Do you know who you are dealing with? I am considered royalty on these pages. I am special. Now go Mack Moo

certainly, i had posted that side effects will be irans experince, they have learned alot from these virus attacks, the mistake here was if israel or usa wasnt sure if virus would be able to kill their nuclear work for good then they shouldnt have done it, it only helped your enemies, now they are more sophisticated
5. The author is partially right
Misha ,   Tel Aviv   (05.16.13)
But he fails to mention that although the Stuxnet virus may have strengthened the Iranian's resolve, it also undermined their security, big time. They can never be sure a more destructive virus won't hit them in the future...

sarah B of the United States does not have the mental capacity to understand the law of unintended consequences. Unless you deliver a killer knockout blow Iran will continue to inmprove it's nuclear facilities at Natanz, even though I personally believe the site is the biggest red herring in the history of red herrings. Iran is going down the same route as Pakistan and North Korea, that's a plutonium bomb. That requires a facility similar to Dimona make a lot of noise about nuclear facilities already known to the west whilst quietly getting on with the real programme. A programme we already know Al Assad was attempting

If the Sara B. from U.S.A / Israel had a lobotomy she could still mentally run circles around both of you.

9. Israeli claim to Stuxnet was an obvious embarrassment.
Michael ,   California, USA   (05.16.13)
No need to keep repeating what many of us knew from day one. The most surprising (to me) failure was in not seeing on Ynet a single report from a credible professional on the commotion that developed in Israel when news about Stuxnet were circulating.

stuxnet was not meant to prevent the installation of additional centrifuges.
12. The post at No. 3 is not mine.

13. To: No. 2
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (05.16.13)
Who commissioned the study? FARS news agency? Iran's nuclear program was dealt a crippling blow. But if you think that STUXNET has stopped morphing -- think again. If you think that the experts have found all of STUXNET's large family of cousins .... think again.

I'm just stating the obvious.
15. Mahmood, fake sarah and splat
Cynthia ,   USA   (05.16.13)
Everyone is an expert. So some group in the UK published a study. Wow! They're too ashamed to mention the name of the group. It could be Mahmood's team of pro-Iran supporters. So calm down and wait for the next report from Israel to get a credible assessment.

Persian CAT   (05.17.13)
helped Iran to gain valuable experience in the anti-cyber warfare area. Something that many countries still lack. The downside of the Stuxnet fiasco is that it is running wild in the US and even Israel, although the Israeli media are under strict censorship when it comes to Israeli weaknesses to fight cyber-attacks.
