Default FAQ: Flame, the "super spy"

From http://h-online.com/-1587063

Quote:
The spyware worm Flame is being billed as a "deadly cyber weapon", but a calmer analysis reveals it to be a tool by professionals for professionals that doesn't actually have that many new features compared to, say, the widespread online-banking trojan Zeus.

Flame may be big in size but it's nothing like the supposedly devastating cyberwarfare mega-weapon early reports of the malware suggested. This new nasty is quite complex by design, yet researchers are still hunting for any truly evil and innovative attack techniques, or similar threats, within the code.

The cyber-espionage toolkit – reckoned to have been in circulation for at least two years and possibly much longer – created a fire-storm of publicity after Iranian authorities published a stark warning about the virus on Monday.
