The Stuxnet worm may have a new target. While security analysts try to 
figure out whether the now-infamous malware was built to sabotage Iran=E2=80=99s 
nuclear program, North Korea has unveiled a new uranium enrichment plant 
that appears to share components with Iran=E2=80=99s facilities. Could 
Pyongyang=E2=80=99s centrifuges be vulnerable to Stuxnet?

While U.S. officials are trying to figure out how to respond to North 
Korea=E2=80=99s unveiling of a new uranium enrichment plant, there are clues 
that a piece of malware believed to have hit Iran=E2=80=99s nuclear efforts 
could also target the centrifuges Pyongyang=E2=80=99s preparing to spin.

Some of the equipment used by the North Koreans to control their 
centrifuges =E2=80=94 necessary for turning uranium into nuclear-bomb-ready fuel 
=E2=80=94 appear to have come from the same firms that outfitted the Iranian 
nuclear program, according to David Albright, the president of the 
Institute for Science and International Security and a long-time watcher 
of both nuclear programs. =E2=80=9CThe computer-control equipment North Korea 
got was the same Iran got,=E2=80=9D Albright told Danger Room.

Nearly two months before the Yongbyon revelation, Albright published a 
study covering the little that=E2=80=99s publicly known about the North=E2=80=99s 
longstanding and seemingly stalled efforts at enriching its own uranium. 
(.pdf) Citing unnamed European intelligence officials, Albright wrote 
that the North Korean control system =E2=80=9Cis dual use, also used by the 
petrochemical industry, but was the same as those acquired by Iran to 
run its centrifuges.=E2=80=9D
