Flame Virus Menace

Flame Virus – Creating Menace

Flame Virus, which created havoc amongst millions of users worldwide, have now been ordered to self-destruct, as reported by Symantec. The virus rumored to be used by the US and Israeli governments as a cyber-weapon to attack computers of the Middle East, has been ordered to self-annihilate.

Another report pouring in from a computer security firm, Kaspersky revealed that the virus has some codes similar to that of Stuxnet virus, which infiltrated the computer systems in Iran, impairing the nation’s nuclear research program.

Facts about Flame

Flame Virus, which is considered as the most dangerous computer virus ever created, was identified last month. Flame virus is a super-sophisticated malware highly efficient in stealing high volumes of data and sends it back to the server.

The notorious virus is capable enough to record keystrokes, steal passwords, take screenshots, turn on microphones, initiate webcams and collect information about discoverable Bluetooth devices.

If Kaspersky Lab’s analysis is trusted, Flame could be categorized as the third major cyber weapon targeting Iran, after the Stuxnet virus that attacked Iran’s nuclear program in 2010, and its data-stealing cousin Duqu.

The notorious virus is believed to have infected more than 600 specific targets in countries including Iran, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Syria, Lebanon and Egypt.

A Suicidal Command

If reports are to be believed, creators of Flame virus can give a self-destruct command known as ‘urgent suicide’, which removes the virus from infected computers before the user realizes, causing its detection more difficult.

As per Symantec, the command and control (C&C) servers has now sent an updated directive to the virus, termed “Flamer” designed to remove it from infected computers. According to the reports, the command would remove all traces of the virus infection from clients’ computer receiving this file.
