Privacy, Security, Encryption "And just when you thought the whole Stuxnet/Duqu trojan saga couldn't get any crazier, a security firm who has been analyzing Duqu writes that it employs a programming language that they've never seen before." Pretty crazy, especially when you consider what some think the mystery language looks like "The unknown c++ looks like the older IBM compilers found in OS400 SYS38 and the oldest sys36.The C++ code was used to write the tcp/ip stack for the operating system and all of the communications."

I don't have anything directly on topic to contribute to this, but... I want to say that this thread is very interesting and informative; exactly the kind of thing that made me a regular reader of OSNews.

yoursecretninja,


Yea, I love the technical topics and to understand the OS internals... Optimizing stuff is a challenge I always enjoy, but it's an archaic concept these days. I only wish I could land a decent job where my skills were actually appreciated, it's a struggle. On my own I'm working on a secure dedupping P2P backup protocol, which is alot more interesting than my day job.
