Imagine the most insidious computer virus you've experienced, multiply it a million times and then unleash it on an enemy nation. That provides a thumbnail essence of Stuxnet, the virulent computer worm that the United States and Israel launched to sabotage Iran's nuclear development. This super-bug didn't just hijack computers or pilfer information from them; it physically destroyed their mechanism, ruining them beyond repair. Lurking in this regional story, of course, is a scenario for the next great war. Wired journalist Kim Zetter, who helped break the story, reveals the unfolding saga of digital weapons and where they might be taking us. Editor's recommendation.
