Fresh analysis of the malware Flame suggests it could be part of a much wider “family”. Flame is believed to have targeted sensitive data in Iran. It has already been linked to Stuxnet, which was aimed at Iran’s nuclear infrastructure. Analysis of the server controlling the malware suggests three similar pieces of code are as yet undiscovered. The study also suggests Flame dates back to 2006, much earlier than previously thought. Discovered in May, Flame has already been linked to Stuxnet, a worm that attacked Iran’s nuclear infrastructure, and Duqu, a data-stealing worm that also infected some of Iran’s computer systems.
