In the information security and military circles, the phrase cyber war and its integral components are still undefined, but this acknowledgement of the USA standing behind the Stuxnet worm could be understood as an "official" start of a cyber war between these countries.
Parts of critical infrastructure are legitimate targets in non-kinetic warfare, so a fresh and updated set of security rules and methods could be a good thing for organizing their protection. Even if the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 is not the optimal solution, it is at least a positive step forward.
