"Flame" may have lurked inside Mideast computers for five years as part of a sophisticated campaign.
Iranian security experts report a virus far more dangerous than the Stuxnet worm has struck the country's computer systems.
Dubbed the “Flame,” the virus is one that has struck not only Iran, however, but a number of other enemies of Israel as well.
The Kaspersky Internet security firm is calling the “Flame” data-stealing virus the “most sophisticated cyber-weapon yet unleashed” and hinted it may have been created by the makers of the Stuxnet worm.
