"Son of Stuxnet" May Pose a Threat to Industrial Computers

Allahpundit is one of the first to report that this new virus, called Duqu, could be even more devastating to more countries than Stuxnet, which was targeting the Iranian nuclear program. Like a crafty spy, it infiltrates a computer, opens a backdoor, collects keystrokes and downloads files, and self-destructs in 36 days. McAfee provides more technical details on this worm, as does Symantec. Fortunately, few computers have been infected at this time.
