Stuxnet: Anatomy of a Computer Virus



June 2011

An infographic dissecting the nature and ramifications of Stuxnet, the first weapon made entirely out of code. This was produced for Australian TV program HungryBeast on Australia's ABC1.


Important Note: this animation is excellent at conveying the uniqueness of Stuxnet, however, it contains a few technical inaccuracies. For example Stuxnet had 7 zero day vulnerabilities, not 20.
