Symantec researchers have found new malware that bears striking similarities to the Stuxnet Trojan.
"Symantec Security Response researchers say Duqu (pronounced dyü-kyü), named because it creates files with the file name prefix '~DQ,' was first identified on October 14," writes SearchSecurity.com's Robert Westervelt. "The security vendor issued a report Tuesday outlining its analysis of Duqu [PDF file]."
"'The attackers are looking for information such as design documents that could help them mount a future attack on an industrial control facility,' Symantec said in its report," Westervelt writes.
