Wired Reporter: US' Actions Against Iran Wrong

By    |   Monday, 17 Nov 2014 03:41 PM

The U.S. used high-tech computer viruses to ruin equipment being used to enrich uranium in Iran — but that may not have been a good idea, says Kim Zetter, a senior staff writer at Wired, which reports on emerging technologies.

"It was reckless in the sense that it basically launched the era of digital warfare for us. What it did was legitimize this as a viable option for responding to political disputes that nations have with one another," Zetter said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"The U.S. can't stand on its moral high ground … now and accuse other countries of engaging in this kind of activity when it's been shown to be behind one of the first digital weapons launched. It's done that."

Zetter is author of the new book, "Countdown to Zero Day: Stuxnet and the Launch of the World's First Digital Weapon," published by Crown.
