Anatomy of a Computer Virus
Posted by Alex
This is an awesome video infographic about the computer virus Stuxnet. It was created by Patrick Clair, a motion designer from Australia. I’m not sure which was more captivating for me, the visuals or the information. From a design perspective, this is gorgeous, but it’s also a fascinating description of Stuxnet, the first “open source weapon.”

Wow, Im more impressed with stuxnet, but the animation is nothing to be overlooked. A bit scary(& great) to think what open source is being used for.
