Stars: New Virus in Iran?

This morning Strategic Forecasting, Inc. (commonly known as STRATFOR) posted the following tweet on Twitter:
An Iranian scientist discovered a virus, Staress, in Iran’s computer system; the virus is currently being studied at a laboratory.
At this time, information on the alleged virus is very limited. While put the backdrop of the Stuxnet worm event of 2010, this story merits keeping an eye on.

Gholamreza Jalali told the semi-official Mehr news agency that the new virus, called "Stars", was being investigated by experts.

"Fortunately, our young experts have been able to discover this virus and the Stars virus is now in the laboratory for more investigations," Jalali was quoted as saying. He did not specify the target of Stars or its intended impact.
