Flame Malware Details Surface, Point to More Viruses
Almost four months after Kaspersky Lab uncovered the massively distributed Flame malware strain, the researchers have released new information about the security threat, which reportedly dates back to 2006.
Kaspersky, in conjunction with the International Telecommunication Union's IMPACT Alliance, CERT-Bund/BSI, and Symantec, studied a number of Command and Control (C&C) servers used by Flame's creators, leading to the discovery of three malicious programs still running wild.
Analysis of the scripts used to handle data uploaded from infected machines revealed four communication protocols, Kaspersky Lab said, and only one was compatible with Flame. That means that at least three other types of malware are being run by the same C&C servers and at least one Flame-related virus is still operating.
