Just now 'The Flame', the most powerful malware till date has been identified. Again, we must say that calling 'The Flame' a malware is insult for 'The Flame'.

When security community can call Stuxnet- the first cyber weapon, then 'The Flame' should be called as first nuclear cyber weapon.

'Flame' is the 20 times more complex than Stuxnet. Antivirus companies took 6 months to analyze Stuxnet. Imagine how much time and effort would be required to analyze 'The Flame'

'Flame' is massive and most likely targeted for Iran and Isreal.

Once the PC is infected with 'Flame', it steals all info including password, traffic, image, audio and keystrokes.

In the group of malware, 'Flame' joins the elite club along with Stuxnet and Duqu.

'Flame' is the sophisticated attack toolkit. When fully deployed, it's over 20 Mb in size. Such a huge size is due to many different libraries that it includes. And, this makes Flame difficult to analyze.

Flame doesn't target any specific sector or organization. All of us are equally vulnerable.
