Massive Cyber-Attack named Flame uncovered
 

A complex cyber attack has been spotted that targeted countries including Iran and Israel.

Nobody knows yet who is behind Flame. Kaspersky Labs told the BBC, that Flame is online since August 2010. The malware is supposed to be one of the most complex threats ever discovered. A nation is likely behind Flame, but there is no proof so far.

Flame had about 2 years to collect sensitive data. What else is out there? Maybe it is time to go offline. More details on BBC.
