After Stuxnet: Iran Detects Another Computer Virus

Iran said on Sunday it had detected Duqu, a computer virus that experts say is based on Stuxnet, the virus that hit the Islamic Republic’s computers last year.

“We are in the initial phase of fighting the Duqu virus,” Gholamreza Jalali, the head of Iran’s civil defense organization, told the official IRNA news agency. “The final report which says which organizations the virus has spread to and what its impacts are has not been completed yet.”
