Kapersky labs has recently discovered a virus in the middle east that finds sensitive bank account information and collects information about the users computer. The anti-virus company suggests that the virus/worm is more than likely to be used for “espionage” rather than general bank fraud. Windows 7 machines with SP1 tend not to be affected as well as Mac and Linux machines. Most infected PC’s have been XP and Win7 non SP1 machines. Simply enough, testing for infection of the virus is as quick as searching your fonts. If you have “Palida Narrow” this is a font the malware installs on infected machines. A quick search on Kapersky’s website will give a description of how to detect and remove the virus.
