BREAKING: Stuxnet, Flame and now GAUSS: State-sponsored Cyberweapon targets Middle East bank accounts!
A new virus dubbed Gauss has attacked computers in the Middle East spying on financial transactions, emails and picking passwords to all kind of pages. The virus resembles Stuxnet and Flame malware which was used to target Iran, Kaspersky Lab says.

Gauss has infected hundreds of personal computers across the Middle East – most of them in Lebanon, but also in Israel and Palestinian territories. Kaspersky Lab has classified the virus, named after one of its major components, as “a cyber-espionage toolkit”.

Gauss is likely the first state-sponsored cyberweapon to specifically target bank accounts, Kaspersky said. Though most malware goes after financial information in one form or another, that's not something government-sponsored cyber attackers have typically been interested in.

"This is a cyberweapon, and we don't know hot it could be used," said Kamlyuk. "It could be used to cause a big disaster."
