Report: New piece of malware found in Iran

A new piece of malware that deletes date from infected computers has been found in Iran, online magazine Computer World reported Monday, citing Maher, Iran's Computer Emergency Response Team Coordination Center (CERTCC).
According to the report the malware deletes entire partitions and user files and the Maher Center described it as a targeted attack with a simple design.
"Despite its simplicity in design, the malware is efficient and can wipe disk partitions and user profile directories without being recognized by anti-virus software," Computer World quoted Maher as saying.
