The boss of the world’s biggest security company said the Stuxnet virus that targeted Iranian industrial facilities last year came as no big surprise. But Enrique Salem of Symantec admitted the ability of the worm was “unprecedented”. Speaking to a small group of reporters after his keynote address to the world’s biggest security conference, he said “as much as we have been planning and preparing for an attack like Stuxnet, what we saw was a different level of sophistication. “What we had been anticipating was an attack on critical infrastructure – instead of someone flying over and dropping a bomb they would use cyber warfare to do the attack.”
