CIA ex-chief lauds Stuxnet virus use against Iran

CIA ex-chief lauds Stuxnet virus use against Iran 03 Mar 2012 A former CIA chief has praised the US use of Stuxnet virus to sabotage Iran's nuclear energy program, noting that the measure legitimized using malware as a weapon to cause destruction. "We have entered into a new phase of conflict in which we use a cyber weapon to create physical destruction," said Michael Hayden, former director of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), in an interview with CBS television to be broadcast on Sunday. "This was a good idea, alright?" he added. The retired US general went on to say that the attempt to disrupt Iran's nuclear energy program by Stuxnet has given legitimacy to the use of malicious software as a new type of warfare.
