We had Kim Zetter on stage for an interview at ICSage during S4x15 Week to discuss her new book: Countdown to Zero Day: Stuxnet and the Launch of the World’s First Digital Weapon. This first 2015 episode of the Unsolicited Response Podcast features that interview.

The podcast includes:

  • Who was the target audience for the book
  • Why Siemens didn’t play a bigger role in the book
  • The hard to believe Sean McGurk chapter
  • Did the US want Stuxnet to be discovered
  • How her book differed from David Sanger’s book
  • How Stuxnet infected Natanz
  • Details on Stuxnet version 0.5 that only spread through Siemens project files

The Unsolicited Response Podcast has been inactive for a while now, which is a shame because I enjoy doing it and get a lot of positive feedback. Much of the difficulty in recording the podcast has been solved now that I have a very mobile podcast rig that I can bring with while traveling.

I’m committed to a minimum of 20 podcasts in 2015, and there are a few compelling guests already lined up. We will wait until five episodes are recorded before bringing on podcast sponsors, but let us know if you are interested in sponsoring Unsolicited Response.
