Duqu Hits The Nuclear Program of Iran


Few days before we have talked about Duqu, the next generation cyber attack tool. Here Duqu shows his 1st magic by hitting the nuclear program of Tehran
Iran’s nuclear program comes under another cyber threat withDuqu,’ a worm that gathers intelligence data and assets from entities. The new threat comes after Stuxnet, a virus allegedly produced by the United States and Israel that slowed Iran’s first nuclear plant Bushehr before it was inaugurated last month. First there was the Stuxnet computer virus that wreaked havoc on Iran’s nuclear program. Now “Duqu” appears to be quite similar, according to researchers on Oct. 18.
“Duqu’s purpose is to gather intelligence data and assets from entities, such as industrial control system manufacturers, in order to more easily conduct a future attack against another third party,” security software firm Symantec said on its website. It was named Duqu because it creates files with “DQ” in the prefix. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security said it was aware of the reports and was taking action.
