Also, Cluley's blog indicates that a person accused of illegal pharmaceutical export claims to have had the spyware installed on his laptop while transiting Customs at Munich Airport. Although later deleted, this laptop was one of the spyware sources provided to the CCC (with the permission of the accused person).
As part of their research, the CCC also claims to have located many computers infected by this spyware all over Germany.
Earlier this week, CCC spokeswoman Constanze Kurz told German radio that the group was "quite sure" the German government had developed the malware.
"We have no doubt, otherwise we wouldn't have gone public with it," she said. F-Secure's Mikko Hypponen added, while not being able to independently verify the claims, "We have no reason to doubt CCC findings."
