It’s no surprise to see a return of the infamous stuxnet virus. With the source code being so readily available, it was only a matter of time.
This time the virus isn’t designed to really ‘attack’ anything, but rather gather information for a future attack. In the original stuxnet attack, stolen certificates were taken from both Siemens and Realtec. This time, the certificate was stolen from Symantec.
Once again, the attacking body is unknown, and the intentions are unknown. Only time will tell what this virus has done. The threat is still very new.
