Duqu Virus Treatened Microsoft Windows Users

A new virus, Duqu, now threatens Microsoft Windows users. Duqu virus works by exploiting security holes and zero day vulnerability in the Windows kernel.

Symantec, which has found this virus in October believe that this virus has similarities to the Stuxnet. Both have a similar code, the difference is Stuxnet targeted for Iran's nuclear program while Duqu collects intelligence data from corporations or agencies.

Symantec adds that Duqu virus spreads through shared network. So every network administrator should take care about it even if the computers under their responsibility have no direct access to the internet.

Until now Duqu only attack targets that have been determined. Symantec mention the possibility of infection from this virus in six companies operating in french, The Netherlands, Switzerland, the Ukraine, India, Iran, Sudan and Vietnam. Another security firm says the UK, Austria, and Indonesia are also attacked by this virus.

In addition to the shared network, Duqu also infect a system through a compromised Microsoft Word document and then installs malicious software after it is opened. Here is a quote from Microsoft about Doqu virus:
“We are working diligently to address this issue and will release a security update for customers.”

  1. Djelloul: The Mafia has been portrayed in
    many ways in books and movies, and I don't have a quarrel with these portrayals, because the Mafia is a work of many facets. The advert designs can range from being simple text affairs that are very basic, which also tend to be less expensive, to the more expensive, fully graphic designed adverts with photo quality images that can take up a whole page of the newspaper. Hindi Samachar is entertaining millions of people with incredible reports, events, information and gossips. Some say it would have, because there is an ongoing collaboration between the two groups in attacks on Israel. Thats why Indian Hindi papers are very popular in all corners of India.

  2. Make sure to evenly cover your hair, especially the tips.

    The key to getting the most out of a hot oil treatment for hair is to continuously use it weekly if you need it or every fortnight and youll definitely see the results.
    These can be expressed in a number of ways: straight
    hair, slightly wavy hair, or curly hair. From my experience,
    it is quite difficult to style hair immediately after a hot oil
    treatment, so you might want to skip the curling iron or hot rollers.
    * Apply oil unto your hair - Run your fingertips through your hair and rub it in an
    even way.
