Iranian officials have confirmed that Duqu computer virus had been launched in the country. Meanwhile, many insecurity analysts believe that Duqu was specifically designed to attack Iran, so that shouldn’t have come as a surprise.
Duqu computer virus is actually based on Stuxnet virus. The latter has been specifically designed to destroy the Iranian nuclear websites. A few days ago the head of the country’s civil defense organization confirmed during the interview to a news agency that PCs at all main sites at risk had been checked. They also pointed out that Iran had been developing particular software destined to combat the virus. Gholamreza Jalali explained that Iran was actually in the initial phase of fighting this virus. According to the report, it isn’t clear yet which outfits had been affected by the virus and how it influenced them. Gholamreza Jalali confirmed that all the outfits and centres that could have been susceptible to contamination were taken under control of the officials.
Duqu virus has been discovered last month, after the largest security software maker in the world Symantec announced it had run into a mysterious virus containing code that was similar to Stuxnet. However, the malware was different both in structure and in purpose – while Stuxnet had been aimed at crippling industrial control systems, this new virus seems to be designed to collect information able to make it easier to start future cyber attacks.
The country claimed this past spring that it had been targeted by another computer virus called “Stars”. When industry observers wondered whether Stars and Duqu could be related, Gholamreza Jalali said that Duqu is considered to be the third virus to hit the country.

|Any country that has a figurehead as ugly as Mahmoud Afterdinnerjacket needs to have their a$$ kicked. The hackers of the world should bombard this country relentlessly with thousands of viruses for a year and send those diaper heads back to the stone age.|
|@ciance go fook yourself you klke|
|Why do we care about these sand-fleas who still live in the stone ages anyway? All their money and resources goes toward developing nukes, not developing the country. Maybe if I walked around with a bath robe over my head all day I'd understand. Blood flow to the brain not withstanding.|
|I agree with a portion of #2 comment (ciance) with 3 minor changes to be more "Politically Correct" and outspoken:|
The hackers of the world should bombard THE IRANIAN GOVERNMENT & LEADERS AS WELL AS THEIR ALLIES relentlessly with thousands of viruses FOREVER and send THEM ALL back to the stone age.
I'd rather not see some TECH SAVY HOTHEADS BLOW UP MY PLANET!
|i am not quite sure about liking or agreeing with some of the posters racial biased comments. never criticize other people or countries from where you nationalized as your homeland. you have to understand first the reasons why those countries want to also arm themselves as nuke-avail nations. why those "sand fleas" or "ugly dude" you tagged would appear.|
|Iran is the second most afflicted country by weapons of mass destruction only after Japan due to WMDs used by Saddam Hussein against Iranian civilian & military population; Iran did not retaliate even though it was capable of doing so. even if they are trying to make nuke i say its they right to be able to defend them self against Americans|

|@copyrightMan well said..... but the protection is not only just against Americans, the main actor of threat against Iran is ISRAEL... why no body ask abt their nukes????? why they always seeks nukes in Muslim countries? ok I agree that its not good for humanity then what made them to make nukes??? why only they've the right to live peacefully on this planet (Jews and other western countries) without any threat??? just check the news everyday Israel kills hundreds of innocent in Palastine and still they threatening Iranian that they'll attack today or tomorrow on Iran....|
|because Isreal does it within Gaza and Isreal. Iran is a Extremist Country, with no problem dropping nukes on any country that doesnt agree with there views. With no second thoughts, without considering long-term effects.|
Get over youre religious Differences people, youre all human. you all share Similar Genetic Codes. You want to have a Religious Genocide, move to the moon with youre problems.
As far as this Virus goes. GOOD, maybe enough set backs will financially cripple them and force them to drop it. Sell the materials to a terrorist party and they will blow them selves up trying to manipulate it.
|Israel is threatening the world with something called the Samson option also Israel is the most racist country in the world it deserves to be destroyed one day it will The creator had to gather the filth in one place to get rid of them and its called israel|

|I don't care what they do in there own yard. The trouble is, from the last 5000 year, when they get sick of there own yard, they want someone else as well. That is the problem. So how do we solve that problem. Well I know that if someone hit me with a GREAT BIG stick, in my yard, I would hit them back with a BIGGER stick, so what happens then. Just look at what has happened in the past, every one suffers. You would think we all would have learned something, from the past, by the looks of it we haven't.|

|I lived in Armenia for 3 years which is on the northern border of Iran and I met a lot of Iranian people. Don't judge the people brothers and sisters because they are very oppressed by their government. Iranian people are a beautiful people just trying to live their lives like the rest of us....|
|its the start of the silent war. start by attacking their infrastructure first, lol|

|Iran isn't like Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Libya or Syria etc etc, Americans n western have already made angry half of muslims, with this they'll lose every camp in any muslim country and ofcourse they'll lose 1st of all his rascal bastard son Israel.|
American n western said that their is mass destruction weapons in Iraq but the result is infront of whole world, the biggest lie.
once american tried to destroy the Iran enticed to Saddam against Iran but failed. war against Iran will be the last of Americans n Westerns, they can't win the war after decades against few Talibans and Iraqies, how can they'll win the war when the whole world muslims stand against them.
I think its the time for Americans and westerns to accept the muslims nukes otherwise they'll drag the planet to a chaos n destruction.

|Iran is working on nuke energy as an alternative to oil but someone doesn't like that :|
1) they'd be energetically independent for many many years
2) there's still some oil to steal in the country
1st step taking control of their computers and next one take control of their land ?

|Typical american government. biggest terrorist in the world. obsessed with war. they can't even sort out their own country but must insist on invading other countries. Whether it land, air or water and now cyber. Laughing stock of the world. Iran will never go to war, coz it knows it will get decimated. WW3 - China. watch this space. When America renage on their debt to the chinese all hell will break loose. Follow the money!!! Someone needs to teach those boys a lesson that they cant keep on flexing their muscles to the detriment of the normal joe blogg. Nuff said.||
