F-Secure Forensics & Ping Pong Labs are currently analyzing the contents of the USB stick.

The USB drive likely contains a zero-day exploit that dropped PLC malware targeting the control units of the Titanic's steam engines.

We expect to have full details on this case soon, probably by the end of business on April 1st.
