Stuxnet Transmission

Just a quick note about another Stuxnet transmission technique discovered over at Symantec. Their latest Stuxnet blog describes how infected project files can transmit the malware between computers and even provides a way to re-infect a cleaned computer by running a back-up version of a project file. It certainly seems like the Stuxnet design team wanted to make sure that their toy had staying power. So now Stuxnet can be propagated via:
● USB Stick
● Print Spooler
● Network via P2P
● Project Files
The only thing missing is an email transmission mode via the address book list and the Vulcan Mind Meld. But, research is still on going.

BTW: Symantec has collected all of their Stuxnet blogs at one convenient URL: http://www.symantec.com/connect/stuxnet
