Virus targets antivirus researchers

Researchers at Sophos labs in Sydney last week discovered a virus designed to specifically target antivirus researchers.

The virus, dubbed "Gattman" by Sophos research staff, was discovered last Wednesday. It is a proof of concept virus and is not a threat to the majority of companies or even home PC users. However, it is compelling evidence that malware authors are designing viruses to target specific industries, companies or even individual users.
