Detection Tools Released for Gauss Malware

Malware researchers have released tools to detect the newly discovered Gauss banking malware. Kaspersky Lab and CrySyS (Laboratory of Cryptography and System Security) Lab devised Web-based tools that let anyone determine if they’ve been infected by Gauss, which retrieves secure information, including banking data. Detection relies on the presence of a font called Paladi Narrow found in the malware. Its significance is not yet known.  Kaspersky reported it has found about 2,500 occurrences of Gauss—which it estimates has been live since the fall of 2011—primarily in Lebanon.
