'Flame' Computer Virus, a Tool for Espionage

Hosted by  • 

Flame is "pretty fantastic and incredible in its complexity," according to the chief of security at Russia's Kaspersky Lab. The latest virus to turn up in computers around the world can swipe documents, recorded conversations and keystrokes from infected programs, and allow attackers to "tweak the toolkit and add new functionality." Kim Zetter who writes the "Threat Level" blog for Wired magazine, has more on the latest in espionage and cyberwarfare.
