‘Red October’ malware found snooping on Russian state networks

• Christian Science Monitor
On Monday, the Russian Internet security firm Kaspersky Labs announced that it has hunted down a previously unknown, advanced cyber-espionage network that it calls "Red October" (after Tom Clancy's novel), which has probably been vacuuming top-secret data from diplomatic, scientific, and corporate computers around the world since 2007.

According to the firm, the network is still active.
