How Stuxnet was deciphered

Awesome article from Wired. Had me hooked for all eight pages. I still can't read about Stuxnet without being floored by its capabilities. While parts of the story are definitely romanticized, I can really appreciate how Symantec's guys became obsessed with figuring it out at the risk of it being a government operation. That part is probably romanticized too, though... Damn...

Seems like I heard this was primarily an Israeli effort. But one thing is for certain those stuxnet developers were really good.
