TEHRAN // Iran revealed yesterday that a so-called computer worm – which experts say shows unprecedented ingenuity and is unique in its ability to seize control of industrial plants – has infected the personal computers of staff at its first nuclear power plant.

In the tech community and in the automation/manufacturing community we have been reading about this for weeks.  I wonder what aspect of it finally gave traction to the mainstream media to pay attention.  Could it be... nuclear programmes?  It is about flipping time.
