'Stuxnet, US-Israeli Bid Against Iran'

Intelligence services of Israel and the United States have collaborated in developing a malicious malware known as Stuxnet computer worm aimed at disrupting Iran's nuclear program.

The New York Times reported on Saturday that Israel has tested the effectiveness of the Stuxnet computer worm at its nuclear facility in Dimona complex in the Negev desert before releasing it.

The report quoted intelligence and military experts and officials as saying the effort to create Stuxnet computer worm was a joint US-Israeli project that also involved collaborations by Britain and Germany.

"To check out the worm, you have to know the machines," a US expert told the newspaper.'
