    Attacked the nuclear program without a shot fired. Cyber Warfare is the way of the future. Fascinating.

    Well make no mistake about it, the Israelis aren't just sitting on their asses pondering a military strike - they are actively undermining Iran's nuclear capabilities in all sorts of ways. I agree with you - pretty fascinating stuff. Thanks for the heads up.

    Siemens systems are used in nuclear power plants, but not (to the best of my knowledge) in safety-related applications (to shut down the reactor or initiate safety systems). So the best they can manage would be to cause the reactor to go off line. I do think, though, that taking out the turbine side would be useful. Without any load, you can't really run a reactor. You gotta send the heat somewhere.
