New Linux Trojan Found, Part of Turla

From Ostatic:
Kaspersky Lab is saying this newly discovered Linux malware is part of the Turla campaign indicating that the culprits aren't limiting themselves to Windows. And that's not all that's unusual about this code. Security experts Kurt Baumgartner and Costin Raiu today posted that a "previously unknown piece" of the Turla puzzle was discovered that is quite unusual. It's "the first Turla sample targeting the Linux operating system" found. Baugartner and Raiu said: The Linux Turla module is a C/C++ executable statically linked against multiple libraries, greatly increasing its file size. It was stripped of symbol information, more likely intended to increase analysis effort than to decrease file size.
