Did Iran Sustain a Cyber Attack?

Cyberspace is naturally becoming a target for espionage.

Assuming this is due to the efforts of the CIA, or NSA, or what-have-you, was it a success mission, or bumbled probing that became noticed?
Well Bushehr was supposed to be up and running but it isn't, and they haven't told why. Also the centrifuge facility had several failures at the time this worm was active (according to the article, it had a halt date). So...maybe the attack was successful, but Iran certainly won't affirm that.

Your list of possible perpetrators is a good start...I'd add Israel, I think.
