Also worth noting:

In October, BitDefender released a free removal tool for users infected with Win32.Worm.Stuxnet. The Stuxnet Removal Tool, available as a free download from MalwareCity, removes all known Stuxnet variants from a user's computer, as well as the rootkit drivers used to conceal them.

Stuxnet was first "discovered" in June 2010. Microsoft Malware Protection Center offered some additional info in July. Thanks for the reminder that this is still a problem.
