Duxin victims include top NGOs in Asia and Africa, including the Ministry of Justice. Thakur says once the computer is infected, Ducks can be controlled from anywhere in the world.

The federal government is also focusing on the Symantec report in the United States. Its technical director is Indian-American Vikram Thakur. He says the allegations against China are based on events in which Dux elements are linked to other known, Chinese computer hacker infrastructure or cyber attacks. The researchers said the discovery was important because of the size of the system and the advanced nature of the equipment.
