Hi Kent,

You have heard about it right. The Russian anti-virus firm Kaspersky has revealed the existence of a new piece of malware it calls, “one of the most complex threats ever discovered”. The so-called Flame malware is believed to have been operating since August 2010 at least.

However still now this virus is undetectable by any anti-virus, but for more security you have to update your anti-virus.

Hope this helps.

Charlie

The super complex malware that Kaspersky discovered was called the Flame Malware. According to Alexander Gostev, Kaspersky Lab Expert, “Flame can easily be described as one of the most complex threats ever discovered. It’s big and incredibly sophisticated. It pretty much redefines the notion of cyber war and cyber espionage”.

It is a malicious, highly sophisticated program that’s actively being used as a cyber weapon to aim at or target entities in a number of countries. It is intended to carry out cyber espionage. The discovery of this malware was announced on May 28, 2012 by Kaspersky Lab, MAHER Center of Iranian National, CrySyS Lab of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, and CERT or Computer Emergency Response Team.

The Flame Malware is capable of recording audio, network traffic, keyboard activity, and screenshots. It can also record conversations on Skype as well as convert an infected computer into Bluetooth beacon which tries to download contact information from any Bluetooth-enabled devices within the vicinity.

During the time of its discovery, 65 percent of the infections occurred in Sudan, Iran, Israel, Lebanon, the Palestinian Territories, Egypt, Syria, and Saudi Arabia. The vast majority of targets were within Iran. Also, there are reports of Flame infections in North America and Europe. The Flame Malware can spread to other systems through a USB flash drive or local area network (LAN).
