So as an engineering student I've been pretty busy lately but this newest article is just too big to pass up. It seems a group of hackers were payed, or at least organized into forming what is being called on of the most advanced hacks ever done. the hack labed Stuxnet was aimed at taking down industrial facilties in Iran by controling the firmware in machines, Including sites where Iran is currently doing work on nuclear weapons and nuclear power. Although the people behind the worm have yet to be revealed I'm pretty sure that I'm not the only one who wishes that they succeeded.
Also you have to read between the lines a little as to how bad Iran was actually hit because they are currently denying everything.
