fun times ahead

According to Kaspersky Stuxnet has an heir. Here are two snippets from Wired’s report on it—mind the rhetorics:

“It’s pretty fantastic and incredible in complexity,” said Alexander Gostev, chief security expert at Kaspersky Lab. […]
    “It took us half-a-year to analyze Stuxnet,” he said. “This is 20-times more complicated. It will take us 10 years to fully understand everything.”

To my cyberpunk-infested mind this sounds as if some mysterious AI has written the thing, maybe even Colossus himself … And if this is true as well, there for sure are fun times ahead.
