Kaspersky's information is misleading and inaccurate. The driver was not
"signed by cryptographic key", but the driver IS the legitimate
software product of EldoS Corporation, stolen by malware creators and
used in the malware.

re: New Targeted Attack Destroys Data At Middle East Energy Organization
Those have got to be the worst types of attacks, the ones that have no purpose or anything to gain just destroy all in its path. It would be interesting to know where the virus originated from, getting a better idea of how it got there could indicate who put it there. I didn't catch weather or not the virus destroyed anything of great value to the energy company. Do these particular types of attacks have a specific name ?
