+ - Iran Downplays Significance of Narilam Malware->

Submitted by

DavidGilbert99 writes "Following last week's discovery of the Narilam malware by security company Symantec, Iran's official computer security group has downplayed its significance, saying it should not be compared to Stuxnet or Flame.

Last week Symantec warned businesses to watch out for a new Iran-focused malware called Narilam which can sabotage corporate databases by changing or deleting the values contained within them.

However, Iran's Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) issued a statement over the weekend which downplayed the significance of the Narilam worm, saying it was first detected over two years ago:

"The malware called 'narilam' by Symantec was an old malware, previously detected and reported online in 2010 by some other names. This malware has no sign of a major threat, nor [is it] a sophisticated piece of computer malware.""
