Duqu is Still in Operation, Researcher Found New Duqu Variant 

Last month researchers at Kaspersky Lab managed to solve the Duqu Mystery. They discovered that this dangerous stuxnet was written by custom object oriented C called “OO C”. But was the sufficient to stop this dangerous cyber weapon? The answer is big no, and today a new Duqu variant rise up, which clearly indicating that the attacks are still ongoing and still security experts failed to put a solid brick between Duqu & cyber space. The latest Duqu driver was compiled in February 2012, more than four months after Duqu was first flagged as a unique piece of malware “striking similarities” to Stuxnet, the mysterious computer worm that targeted nuclear facilities in Iran
Symantec identified the newly compiled Duqu driver as mcd9×86.sys and said it contains no new functionality beyond spying and collecting data from infected machines. Kaspersky Lab’s Costin Raiu says the latest variant has been engineered to escape detection by the open-source Duqu detector toolkit released by CrySyS Lab.
