Is there a banking war against Lebanon? Why Lebanon? Would be interesting to see what develops of this news.

The cyber worm Gauss, designed to steal sensitive data in the Middle East, was found as experts try to mitigate web risks following the discovery of the Flame virus in May, Kaspersky Lab said.

Gauss, while similar to Flame, seems to have a different target, Kaspersky said on its website. Gauss focuses on Lebanon, its banks in particular, while Flame primarily infected computers in Iran, according to the Moscow-based information- technology security company.
