A new documentary on “Stuxnet”, the joint U.S.-Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear program, reveals it was just a small part of a much bigger cyber operation against the nation’s military and civilian infrastructure under the code name “NITRO ZEUS”.

    What is the most sophisticated piece of software/code ever written?

    The most sophisticated software in history was written by a team of people whose names we do not know.

    It’s a computer worm. The worm was written, probably, between 2005 and 2010.

    Because the worm is so complex and sophisticated, I can only give the most superficial outline of what it does.

    The specific motors it searches for are called variable-frequency drives. They’re used for running industrial centrifuges. You can purify many kinds of chemicals in centrifuges.

    Such as uranium.

    Now at this point, since the worm has complete control of the centrifuges, it can do anything it wants with them.

    In addition to everything else it’s doing, the worm is now playing us back a 21 second data recording on our computer screens, that it captured when the centrifuges were working normally.

    The worm plays the recording over and over, in a loop.

    As a result, all the centrifuge data on the computer screens looks completely fine, to us humans.

    You would never expect that all those problems were caused by a computer worm, the most devious and intelligent computer worm in history, written by some incredibly secret team with unlimited money and unlimited resources, designed with exactly one purpose in mind: to sneak past every known digital defense, and to destroy your country’s nuclear bomb program, all without getting caught.

    To have one piece of software do any ONE of those things would be a small miracle. To have it do ALL of those things and many more, well…

    … the would have to be the most sophisticated software ever written.
