HOLY CRAP...HERE'S THE BIG ONE!!!!
this malware has been around a couple of months but has a massive target list... it targets governments, military bases and the gas company that you always go to down the road. It's called "the mask" or "careto" as some people call it
As kaspersky lab has said " What makes The Mask special is the complexity of the toolset used by the attackers. This includes an extremely sophisticated malware, a rootkit, a bootkit, Mac OS X and Linux versions and possibly versions for Android and iOS (iPad/iPhone). The primary targets are government institutions, diplomatic offices and embassies, energy, oil and gas companies, research organizations and activists. Victims of this targeted attack have been found in 31 countries around the world – from the Middle East and Europe to Africa and the Americas."
Now you have to admit it is BADASS and the author is still unknown...They think the author is native to spanish language and that's all they know about the author, Kaspersky labs analysis report "The Mask campaign relies on spear-phishing e-mails with links to a malicious website. The malicious website contains a number of exploits designed to infect the visitor, depending on system configuration. Upon successful infection, the malicious website redirects the user to the benign website referenced in the e-mail, which can be a YouTube movie or a news portal."
