Stuxnet Attack Exposes Inherent Problems In Power Grid Security

This does not bode well for any facility controlled by computer/industrial controls. I am reminded about how hackers once used the bios in printers connected to computers to gain access to the data it held. This seems to be a very serious upgrade to that method. Windows seems to be the main gateway in this instance, but not the only method used. When are people going to learn that for secure mission critical systems that Windows is just not the way to go?? That said this particular intrusion takes physical access to the computer via USB, my guess is that this is some of the covert ops the US is perpetrating on Iran.
