Duqu malware

Duqu malware which seems to be an iteration of the Stuxnet virus that struck the computers at the Iranian nuclear power station recently is affecting computers in the UK, France, Iran, Sudan, Vietnam and more due to an exploit in Microsoft Word!

According to a report by Jon Martindale, “Duqu has specifically targeted a number of organisationslooking to scan across their internal systems, gather intelligence and pass it back out.”

A spokeman from Microsoft was quoted to have said that the company is working to provide protections for the vulnerability!
