Luxury hotels, including InterContinental Geneva,hit by cyber attack claims

Hotels that have hosted the negotiations include the Palais Wilson and Intercontinental in Geneva, the Beau Rivage in Lausanne and the Royal Plaza in Montreux.

Kaspersky said a spy virus dubbed Dugu 2.0 appeared to have compromised computer networks in at least three Swiss hotels that had been host to senior diplomats from Iran and the US, China, Russia, Britain, France and Germany.

The firm said it believed the malware included some unique and earlier unseen features which made its creators feel confident no traces could be left. The carefully planned and sophisticated nature of the attacks led the security firm to believe that a nation state sponsored the campaign.
