According to Jerusalem Post, Iran has been targeted by a Second Cyber Attack after Stuxnet. The new malware has been dubbed Stars, and, according to Iran officials, has been intercepted before it could make further damages.
Fortunately, our young experts have been able to discover this virus and the Stars virus is now in the laboratory for more investigations…
Said Gholamreza Jalali to the semi-official Mehr news. He did not specify the target of Stars or its intended impact.
The particular characteristics of the Stars virus have been discovered. The virus is congruous and harmonious with the [computer] system and in the initial phase it does minor damage and might be mistaken for some executive files of government organizations.”
So far no other news were unleashed… Another cyber bullet shot against Iran?
