'Slingshot' Malware Called 'Well-Oiled Cyber-Espionage Platform'

Researchers have discovered malware so stealthy it remained hidden for six years despite infecting at least 100 computers worldwide. Slingshot -- which gets its name from text found inside some of the recovered malware samples -- is among the most advanced attack platforms ever discovered, which means it was likely developed on behalf of a well-resourced country, researchers with Moscow-based Kaspersky Lab reported.
