    Not the same imo. Stuxnet was created to cause 'immediate' damage, aimed at one specific target, in one specific location, ultra-centrifuges in Natanz, Iran.
    That's something else than stealing/pilfering every piece of profitable/desirable data from governments and private companies globally by government-, government-related- or private hackgroups/orgs.
    Cyberwarfare is not the same as cyber espionage. Not judging what is worse but surely you can't say, it's the same thing.
