Stuxnet revealed tomorrow

It looks like researchers from Symantec are going to give a talk at VB2010 tomorrow that gives details about exactly how the Stuxnet worm works. Stuxnet is apparently an attack program that targets industrial control systems, and there has been some speculation that it's designed to take out Iran's Bushehr nuclear power plant, much like it's thought that a CIA attack program took out the Urengoy – Surgut – Chelyabinsk pipeline back in 1982 as part of their Cold War program to sabotage western technology that the USSR stole.

Starting tomorrow, I'll definitely be looking for the slides for this talk.
