US & Israel computer virus Stuxnet, made to infect Iran nuclear plants,  infected Russian nuclear plant (VIDEO)

Stuxnet, the cyber-weapon allegedly developed the US and Israel to disrupt Iran's nuclear program, has attacked far more than just Iranian nuclear research facilities.

Last year, Chevron was badly infected by the computer virus, as was a Russian nuclear facility that was not connected to the Internet, Eugene Kaspersky, the CEO and chairman of online security firm Kaspersky Labs, said in a speech in Australia.

And now Stuxnet could be headed to the final frontier: Kaspersky said that the International Space Station could be vulnerable to Stuxnet and other computer viruses. RT's Ameera David takes a look at why the ISS could be vulnerable to malware.
