According to Reuters, based on European and U.S. officials and private experts, Iranian engineers have succeeded in neutralizing and purging the computer virus known as Stuxnet from their country’s nuclear machinery.

In 2009, the malicious code penetrated equipment controlling centrifuges Iran is using to enrich uranium, dealing a significant setback to Iran’s nuclear weapons work.

Many experts believed at the time that Israel, possibly with assistance from the United States, was responsible for creating and deploying Stuxnet. But so far no reliable account of Stuxnet’s creation and its entry into Iran’s nuclear program has surfaced.

U.S. and European officials said their governments’ experts agreed that the Iranians had succeeded in disabling Stuxnet and removing it from of their machinery.
