Let's hope that somebody in South Korea remembers that malware doesn't respect borders. Stuxnet escaped from its original cage to bite a whole bunch of countries not originally on the hit list, plus it spawned its nasty son, Duqu.
"There is a cyberwar going on", according to the UN's telecoms boss Hamadoun Toure. Cyber terrorism is capable of causing "mass destruction", says former director of the FBI Louis Freeh. Vladimir Putin, no less, thinks digital attacks could be more damaging than conventional weapons.
But so far there seem to be no human casualties from this 'cyber war', no physical effects from cyber terror. So why all the hype?
Former US Gen James Cartwright, once a trusted member of the president's national security team and the reputed brains behind operation Olympic Games, has been told he's under investigation for leaking information about this very operation.

Federal investigators in the US are tightening the screws on former senior government officials who might have leaked info about the Stuxnet worm.
A group claiming to be from Iran has claimed responsibility for a hack of the international Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in an effort to expose what the group says is an Israeli nuclear weapons program.
US Sen. Joe Lieberman says people in the know are tracing the attacks to the government's cyber army and theorizes that the DDoSes are retaliation for economic sanctions and/or Stuxnet.
The Stuxnet virus was created by the USA to target an Iranian nuclear facility, but accidentally escaped into the wider world, claims the New York Times.
Iranian authorities claim to have discovered another targeted cyberattack against the country - the Flamer worm (also known as Flame).
Is "cyberwar" really upon us? Is a "digital Pearl Harbour" imminent? And is an international agreement on "cyberarms" a plausible solution?
It's Friday the Thirteenth, an infamous date in the history of malware.
So here's a satirical trip down memory lane to consider other dies irae in the computer virus calendar.
