For years we’ve been hearing this real Cassandra talk, from guys like Leon Panetta, about how the next Pearl Harbor could be online. It always seemed a little bit out of whack with what we saw in the real world. …This discovery [of the link between Stuxnet and Flame computer worms] gives a much fuller picture of what this much larger campaign of espionage and sabotage entailed. We knew about Stuxnet and we knew about Duqu [another cyber weapon]... And now we’ve got this third, major effort to do all kinds of espionage, and evidence strongly suggests that they’re all linked.
