Security Firms Warn of 'Stuxnet-Like' Virus

Security researchers on Tuesday issued a warning about a virus, dubbed Duqu, that's similar in nature to the Stuxnet worm that targeted Iranian critical infrastructure last year.

International researchers alerted Symantec about Duqu last week and Symantec found that "parts of Duqu are nearly identical to Stuxnet, but with a completely different purpose"—information gathering rather than system sabotage.
