Dr Murdoch featured in BBC article on cyberweapon auction

Dr Steven Murdoch was quoted on a recent BBC article about an illicit auction of software described as "cyber weapons". The all-pay auction, which is to be conducted via bitcoin is claimed to include software from the makers of Stuxnet, Duqu, and Flame; all widely believed to be state-sponsored. Dr Murdoch stated that "It is extraordinary that a government based (or at least government supported) group would get comprehensively hacked, but there is evidence indicating that this may have actually happened".
