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.""
