These days you must have come across words like Flamer, Flame or Flamy. Actually these words are not related to fire, these words are the actual name of the latest virus threat on internet. Most of the companies consider it as a malware. Though the malware has been discovered recently, but it is infecting systems since 2010.
This is one of the most sophisticated threats encountered on the Internet till day that had put many antivirus companies in trouble. If you compare this malware with other related malwares such as Stuxnet or so, you will find that the size of this malware is 20MB and that of Stuntex is 500KB which proves its complexity.
According to Kaspersky, Flame has two modules for infecting systems via USB sticks, and also the ability to replicate through local networks. But it has been discovered on computer systems mainly in middle-eastern states including Iran, Israel, Palestine, Sudan, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. We can’t say whether it will hit your nation or not.
