Duqu Background
The next chapter of Stuxnet began recently with Duqu, a new threat whose goal is to gather intelligence in order to conduct a future Stuxnet-like attack.

Parts of Duqu's code are nearly identical to Stuxnet's, but it has a completely different goal. Duqu's purpose is to gather intelligence and assets like design documents that will give the attackers the insights they need to mount a future, highly-targeted attack on organizations such as industrial facilities.
