wiredmikey writes: In Mumbai, Indian authorities seized components from servers in a data center after Symantec informed them that they were communicating with the command and control (C&C) infrastructure used by Duqu, the Trojan that is touted as the precursor to the next Stuxnet.

According to a report from Reuters, officials the Department of Information Technology in India seized hard drives and other components from a server hosted in a Mumbai data center.
