Revenge of the Stuxnet: Microsoft isn’t ready to face off with Duqu

Yes folks, this time last week it was Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday, unfortunately this new patch won’t fully solve the latest of troublesome trojans, Duqu (not to be confused an evil Jedi master).

Duqu is a recent meddling malware that many suspect may have been created by the same person, or persons, who created Stuxnet, arguably the most important malware in history. However, where Stuxnet primarily targeted automation and PLC gear, Duqu acts as a recon drone for future attacks, collecting various information from infected systems. I dare say that I am not alone in assuming that a bigger threat might be out there, lying dormant, awaiting this information only to wreak havoc on PCs worldwide.
