Confessions of a CyberSpy Hunter

This 20 minute Ted Talk discusses how a hidden cyberwar is being perpetrated for the past 2 decades online not with bullets and bombs but rather with bits and bytes.  This video outlines how the US government used a custom virus, called Stuxnet, to stop nuclear weapons development in Iran and the consequence of the release of that virus code to other government entities around the world.
