    Stuxnet allegedly has a vicious little brother, or perhaps it is a malicious cousin; the complex malware was likened to being similar to Stuxnet but “more violent, more advanced and more sophisticated.” Iran, according to the Times of Israel, admitted that its “infrastructure and strategic networks” were hit by a meaner, leaner version of Stuxnet. A TV news report added that the Iranians are “not admitting, of course, how much damage has been caused.”
