Stuxnet kicked things off, and since then, there's been an explosion in sophisticated viruses targeting businesses and critical infrastructure in the Gulf region. But, prevention is still an option.
Last month's featured news from Shamoon attacking oil companies to Wyndham Hotels challenging the FTC.
A virus has reportedly shut down the energy company's website and email servers, giving rise to questions of whether the Shamoon virus is to blame.

Oil company Saudi Aramco has yet to confirm whether a virus, which struck 30,000 of its workstations, is Shamoon -- malware said to be targeting the Middle East energy sector.
Shamoon, malware that overwrites files to the point of making computers unusable, has been described as a targeted, yet damaging threat.
