What Is The Gauss Payload?

Dan O'Connor Dan O'Connor Profile: Dan O'Connor

If you have not seen this yet, Gauss is something that appears to have come out of the same labs or workshop as Flame and Stuxnet. This specifically seems to be targeted against the financial industry in the middle east.

Here is a Guardian article with some excellent information;

Kaspersky is still actively working on figuring out the payload, and strangly they are asking for assistance.

If you have the interest and capabilities you can contact them at the above site and get involved. Very very interesting just to get caught up on the current suspicions of what they think is going on.
