    Iranian Regimes Banks subject to cyber attack

    Obama says Iran's Nuke bomb
    more than Yr away and he won't
    wait till last min.

    Iran is "over a year or so" from getting a nuclear bomb, US President Barack Obama has told an Israeli television channel, a week before visiting Israel, warning that a military option remained on the table.
    In an interview with Channel 2 on Thursday, Obama laid out a clear timeline for Tehran to acquire a military nuclear capacity, while insisting that Washington would not wait until the last minute to take action to stop it.
    "We think that it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually develop a nuclear weapon, but obviously, we don't want to cut it too close," he told the private station.

    Asked if there was a realistic option that he would order an attack on Iran's nuclear sites, he said: "When I say that all options are on the table, all options are on the table and the United States obviously has significant capabilities.

    Puzzle box: The quest to crack
    the world’s most mysterious
    malware warhead.


    Gauss. A novel scheme encrypting one of its main engines has so far defied attempts to crack it, generating intrigue and raising speculation that it may deliver a warhead that's more destructive than anything the world has seen before.

    Gauss has the ability to steal funds and monitor data from clients of several Lebanese banks, making it the first publicly known nation-state sponsored banking trojan. It's also programmed to collect a dizzying array of information about the computers it infects—including its network connections, processes and folders, BIOS, CMOS, RAM, and both local and removable drives.

    But the most intriguing characteristic of Gauss is an encrypted payload that has so far remained undeciphered, despite the best efforts of cryptographers who have already tried millions of possible keys.
    "Given how careful the attackers were to make sure the Gauss payload doesn't fall into the 'wrong' hands, we can assume it is very special."

    The encrypted payload in the Gödel module is by no means the only mystery surrounding Gauss. Researchers still don't know how the malware takes hold of target computers in the first place or how it spreads from one machine to another.

    The setup suggests that the command servers handled massive amounts of traffic...

    The choice that Gödel be transmitted using USB drives suggests it was targeting "air-gapped" systems so sensitive they weren't connected to the Internet.

    Raiu told Ars. "What could we find inside the Gauss payload? PLC code? Zero-days? Code to target unknown systems? Nobody knows for sure and it is probably the incertitude which makes it the most captivating mystery."

    Iran will be the first to KNOW,  will know first.
