    I have news for the guy, even if it was known who created it, it wouldn't be made public. For all we know, it is known. Not that it would matter much, before Stux was almost a household name, these kinds of attacks were already known about and very likely carried out. Cyber warfare is far from a new concept, and it's only going to get more sophisticated and effective. One point he made was spot on, and that is that money is, once again, holding back fixes to these and other problems. He's also right that it will be far more costly to not fix these issues. There's not likely a whole lot more time left before we see the results of neglect.
