Now comes Duqu, Son of Stuxnet

Don’t let me strain myself saying I told you so.

Cyber-warfare is here, and it’s just getting warmed up. Somebody who had to have access to Stuxnet source code has produced a new variant appearing “in the wild:” Duqu, malware aimed at industrial control systems that can both spy and destroy equipment. What we are seeing is the rise of a new battle, on a new battlefield. And how will it manifest?

At the least, in the continuing theft of intellectual property. At the worst, in the midnight mid-winter shutdown of America’s power grid. And if you just can’t imagine that, remember that your own intellectual limitations have no effect on reality. We couldn’t imagine 9-11 either.
