"Flame" - complex malware has been exposed by Kaspersky Labs

Malware known as Flame could have been targeting specific countries such as Israel, and Iran, since 2010.

Kasperky Labs, a Russian outfit, thinks that this could be the work of a government, and that the malware causes no damage, but steals private data from targeted organisations, and individuals.

Vitaly Kamluk tells the BBC, "Once a system is infected, Flame begins a complex set of operations, including sniffing the network traffic, taking screenshots, recording audio conversations, intercepting the keyboard, and so on,".
