Stuxnet, The Dawn of Cyberwarfare, a publication in the Enemy of the State book series, looks back on Operation Olympic Game, the cyberattack that changed the world

Stuxnet: The Dawn of Cyberwarfare, by Charles Denierexamines how, by launching this destructive software, United States and Israel effectively sparked an arms race in cyberspace, and although Stuxnet is now defunct (experts believe it ceased functioning in 2012), the ramifications are still there. Just like the use of nuclear weapons on Japan by United States While World War II ushered in the nuclear arms race, countries around the world are pursuing a similar cyber arms race.

AUSTIN, TX, April 29, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The year was 2010. As Iran pushed more aggressively to develop nuclear capabilities, America, Israel, and countless other nations watched with great concern. A nuclear weapon Iran would be hostile to Middle East. Perhaps from iran nuclear initiatives – especially their centrifuges – could be physically wiped out, destroyed, rendered inoperable – all without a single bullet being fired. Impossible? Barely. It happened thanks to a combination of American and Israeli cyber-ingenuity. It happened with Stuxnet.

Stuxnet: The Dawn of Cyberwarfare, by Charles Denierexamines how, by launching this destructive software, United States and Israel effectively sparked an arms race in cyberspace, and although Stuxnet is now defunct (experts believe it ceased functioning in 2012), the ramifications are still there. Just like the use of nuclear weapons on Japan by United States While World War II ushered in the nuclear arms race, countries around the world are pursuing a similar cyber arms race.

Excerpts from Stuxnet: Dawn of Cyberwarfare:

“There is a long, winding, winding road to nowhere when looking for the truth about who developed Stuxnet, how it was implemented, and how the world found out about it. that history would like answered, what is more important to understand is what it has done and what software like Stuxnet can and will do in the future.”

“But what if Operation Olympics doesn’t go as planned? What if the malware doesn’t work as planned, leaving from iran nuclear capabilities intact – and well on the way to creating a real weapons proliferation program at the heart of the Middle East? And if ongoing diplomatic efforts to limit from iran nuclear program failed, leading to military conflict? »

Iran has repeatedly stated that the attack on their nuclear facilities has emboldened them, perhaps worsening the scenario of a hostile regime one day possessing the world’s deadliest weapons. Did the genie come out of the bottle? Is Pandora’s box now open, never to be closed? Critics say yes, America fired the first cyber shot with Stuxnet, which changed the rules of warfare forever.”

The Enemy of the State book series is available on Amazon.
