USA and Israel suspected of involvement in developing Duqu malware - structure similar to Stuxnet worm

The malware has been nicknamed “Duqu” because of the frequent use of the .DQ file extension in its programming code.
What is certain is that Duqu is not the creation of pimply-faced teenage computer nerds with attitude.
Instead, the spyware is a close relative of the most advanced malware to date, the infamous Stuxnet, which caused the destruction of centrifuges at an Iranian uranium enrichment facility in 2010.
“It is an externally controllable collection of programming code that can be made to do just about anything. This is virtual spying at its most complex”, says expert Erkki Mustonen from the Finnish computer security company F-Secure.

Many data security specialists say that Duqu and Stuxnet originate from the same source, for they share a lot of the same programming code.
Stuxnet is widely suspected of having been produced by the United States and Israel, who wanted to delay Iran’s nuclear programme.
The difference between Stuxnet and Duqu is that while Stuxnet’s purpose was to destroy, Duqu simply collects information.
