Kaspersky updating agent

On 15 July 2010, the day the worm's existence became widely known, a distributed denial-of-service attack was made on the servers for two leading mailing lists on industrial-systems security.

To update offline Kaspersky Security Endpoint version, you copy database of Kaspersky to the folder “C: \Program Files\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Security Center\Share\Updates” After the copy process is complete, you run the update task on management tool "Kaspersky Security Center" If you do not use the management tool, you can change the update source of the antivirus software.Stuxnet specifically targets programmable logic controllers (PLCs), which allow the automation of electromechanical processes such as those used to control machinery on factory assembly lines, amusement rides, or centrifuges for separating nuclear material.Exploiting four zero-day flaws, Stuxnet functions by targeting machines using the Microsoft Windows operating system and networks, then seeking out Siemens Step7 software.Stuxnet reportedly compromised Iranian PLCs, collecting information on industrial systems and causing the fast-spinning centrifuges to tear themselves apart.Stuxnet’s design and architecture are not domain-specific and it could be tailored as a platform for attacking modern supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and PLC systems (e.g., in factory assembly lines or power plants), the majority of which reside in Europe, Japan and the US.Kaspersky noted, however, that since the powerplant is not connected to the public Internet, the system should remain safe.

The reason for the discovery at this time is attributed to the virus accidentally spreading beyond its intended target (the Natanz plant) due to a programming error introduced in an update; this led to the worm spreading to an engineer's computer that had been connected to the centrifuges, and spreading further when the engineer returned home and connected his computer to the internet.

The virus targeted a power plant and some other industries in Hormozgan province in recent months.

According to expert Eugene Kaspersky, the worm also infected a nuclear powerplant in Russia.

The next step, you do the same as the above mentioned.

Stuxnet, discovered by Sergey Ulasen, initially spread via Microsoft Windows, and targeted Siemens industrial control systems.
