Re: Flame: Massive cyber-attack discovered, researchers say

Flame (aka Flame aka Skywiper) is a massive, complex piece of malware, used for information gathering and espionage.

The malware is most likely created by a western intelligence agency or military. It has infected computers in Iran, Lebanon, Syria, Sudan and elsewhere.

{Note:Skywiper drops binaries with the .OCX extension, as they are often not scanned by AV. Except by McAfee. So then it uses the .TMP extension.}

CrySyS has published their report on Skywiper / Flamer
