The German computer security expert who first reported that the Stuxnet worm was designed to attack targets in Iran said the virus specifically attacked the country's nuclear program, in a report posted Friday.

In his analysis, Ralph Langner said Stuxnet contained two distinct "digital warheads," specifically designed to attack military targets - Uranium enrichment plants and the Bushehr nuclear power plant.
