"According to the security company, the virus is designed to target
a German-made program often used in systems managing water, gas and
oil pipelines. The program is used at public utilities around the
world, including in Japan."

The targetted machines are siemens industrial controllers, which are
apparently used in all kinds of industrial applications, including
nuclear power plants.

An Australian nuclear physicist says engineers have not given a
satisfactory answer as to why the cooling systems at two Japanese
power plants are failing. ...

"These reactors have so many levels of back-up that the loss of
primary power and then the loss of secondary power shouldn't have
been enough to compromise the most critical element of a reactor,
which is the cooling system.

"I think we're yet to learn all of the issues that are emerging or
that were triggered by the earthquake."
