It seems to resolve to a no-ip.info server for C&C, and until it was reported by us was not showing in malware scans anywhere. We are currently ripping it apart at telecomix. It appears to resolve to a user in the same general address space as earlier viruses.

Secdev is involved (via  freedom house supported project) and membership in the working group overlaps with several other groups working in this area including those you listed. The Citizen Lab also has a malware research project that is working on targeted malware attacks that includes Syria.
