ABSTRACT
The article examines the possible reasons why Iran has drawn conclusion that it had been the victim of a cyber attack by virus Stuxnet. The Stuxnet code showed up on computer systems around the world, where it parked on hard drives, remaining inert if it did not find what it was seeking. It is indicated that it was aimed at Iran. About 60 percent of reported Stuxnet infections occurred on systems in Iran.
