Re: Can YOU Crack The Gauss Uber-Virus Encryption?

Because Panda has no sales there..so it is not important to them...

Not that I actually agree your belittling remarks concerning who is & who isn't 'important' were limited to Panda Security but that's just my opinion.
But since you're the one that keeps saying
"Panda has no sales there..so it is not important to them..." - prove it.

Prove they don't and go play straws with someone else..I am not your gopher..much less a pawn. You go fish.

I believe you meant to say
"Prove they do" not "Prove they don't"
See, you're the one saying Panda Security hasn't any customers in the Middle East, not me.

"Hello,
I've been informed that Panda currently does not offer AV protection to customers in Lebanon or Iran.
Is that an accurate statement?"

Try do they have sales and how many...then ask why they can't or don't id Gauss at this point in time ...you are still on a general fishing expedition trying to twist words in a area you either refuse to understand or just to lazy to read info about Gauss on your own so you can talk your point.

hehe, you accuse me of 'graping at straws, being on fishing expedition etc...' when it's actually you that's looking desperate by asking me to disprove what you're saying is fact.
The onus is on the person making the statement to back it up with fact, rather than requiring the person that doubts the factual basis of the original statement to 'disprove' it.
That's how adults agree to disagree over a statement.
ps I haven't even received an auto reply from customeradvocate-at-pandasecurity.com but I'll stay on top of it & see this question brought to a factual conclusion & post it up here.
Meanwhile - there's nothing constructive happening here, later.

As of about 12 hour ago according to virus total Panda can now id guass and they call it trj/Gauss.A but according to their site none of their customers have reported it as an infection. I would assume they got sig/copy of it from the usual sharing source between AV companies..and seems Gauss has all but disapeared from the wild..very low priority and a flash in the pan. Since it was put out to "intercept passwords, steal computer system configuration information and access credential information for banks located in the Middle East", I am not surprised.

Whether Panda can clean it off an infected system..I guess no one will ever know.

At the bottom of the initial link posted by FF4m3 here on page 2 there is a tool to test ans see if your system meets the needs of this malware. As I can't post a link to an .exe, you will have to go look for it your self. Look for the post by lightswitch05 on 2012 Aug 18, 00:48

Bit off topic, but I think your right. Edited that part now, it seems a little far fetched.

glad you finally made up your mind..was tongue in cheek in any case.

Gauss was a targeted attack..for a very good reason and it gave results of criminal activity that all of us would want to stop. Just happened to be in that part of the world. I am happy that when it was out there gathering the info..no AV could id or clean it off.
