I could see them acknowledging a simple DoS/DDoS if they are trying to play the "victim" as one person mentioned in the article has already speculated.-

You're correct.- A Web server should be isolated within a DMZ and segregated from any other sensitive servers, and ideally there should be an additional layer of security between those sensitive servers and any SCADA infrastructure.

re: Iran: Oil Industry Hit By Malware Attack
This is no Stuxnet:
This could be a DDOS or an actual expoit of some software running on the web server, article does not mention if this is the same as the "terminal" computer. Generally web servers are segregated from sensitive computers, can't imagine they run web servers on their main oil export computer.
