Submission + - Open Source Tool Scans for Duqu Drivers (

wiredmikey writes: A new open source scanning tool has been released by engineers at independent security testing firm NSS Labs that can be used to detect Duqu drivers installed on a system. The tool was developed with the goal of discovering any additional drivers and enable researchers to learn more about the functionality, capabilities and ultimate purpose of the Duqu malware.

Earlier this week it was revealed that the attackers behind Duqu used a Microsoft Windows zero-day as part of their attack campaign. On Thursday Microsoft released a workaround to address the zero-day bug while it continues to work on a permanent fix.
