State news agency IRNA quoted the commander of the Iranian civil-defense organization, Gholam Reza Jalali, as saying that "investigations and studies show that the source of Stuxnet originates from America and the Zionist regime."

Stuxnet was publically identified in June 2010 and reportedly wreaked havoc on computerized industrial equipment in Iran in the following months.
