Switzerland’s attorney general has confirmed to have investigated the presence of spyware in a venue that also hosted talks on Iran’s nuclear negotiations.
Swiss officials confirmed to have found an espionage malware in the computer equipment at Geneva venue, a five-star hotel (believed to be Hotel Président Wilson) that has hosted sensitive talks including Iranian nuclear negotiations.
“Investigations revealed that a significant number of computers (servers and clients) at a hotel in Geneva had been infected with a form of malware,” Office of the Attorney said in a statement on Thursday. “This malware was developed for the purposes of espionage, and is basically used to gather data from the computers infected.”
Clearly gathering information on the nuclear talks is a primary goal for intelligence agencies of any country that are interested to know the evolution of the negotiations with governments involved.
