+ - Researcher Proves Repurposed Flame, Duqu Attacks Possible->

Submitted by ancientribe
ancientribe (1057834) writes "The burning question dogging security experts since the discovery of Stuxnet, Flame and Duqu was whether those sophisticated cyberespionage weapons could be retooled and turned on other targets. A researcher has now tested that theory and found that they are recyclable--with some limitations--and that the Flame authors may have purposely limited the scope of their malware to avoid its being abused by other attackers. Boldizsar Bencsath, a member of the CrySys Lab that was instrumental in studying Duqu, shared his findings at the invitation-only Kaspersky Security Analyst Summit last week."
