Duqu Infecting Systems in Iran

Iran announced today that the new computer worm Duqu has infected a number of systems in the country, but a software program to “control” it has already been developed and distributed to affected installations [IRNA, 14 November]. The Duqu malware is believed to share code base with the Stuxnet. The latter is believed to have caused major damages at the country’s nuclear facilities. It was not known if the new worm was also targeting those same installations. Duqu was discovered on 1 September at a University of Budapest laboratory.
