Top cybersecurity journalist Kim Zetter tells the story behind the virus that sabotaged Iran’s nuclear efforts and shows how its existence has ushered in a new age of warfare—one in which a digital attack can have the same destructive capability as a megaton bomb.
In January 2010, inspectors with the International Atomic Energy Agency noticed that centrifuges at an Iranian uranium enrichment plant were failing at an unprecedented rate. The cause was a complete mystery—apparently as much to the technicians replacing the centrifuges as to the inspectors observing them.

Josephine Wolff As a book, Countdown to Day Zero is a stunning example of a case study, of really diving into a cyber security incident. She takes on the very technical material—getting into the malware and the question of how do these SCADA machines work and how does this piece of software compromise them—but then also brings in this really rich and complicated geopolitical conflict that this is happening as a part of.
