Kaspersky's Chief's Explanation on Flame Virus


Even after the revelation of the Flame virus, the network security establishments continues to flail about in high alert.  On this, Vitaly Kamlyuk from Kaspersky gave various details with the entire history of the Flame malware. The complete research about Flame was recently talked about in public by Kaspersky. It was first detected in the year 2010 however, it was not revealed by the company at that time due to the lack of details.  As per the information provided by Kamlyuk, the detection of Flame was completely a matter of chance for Kaspersky Labs as the lab came across it by accident.

The investigation in the field was taken out by Kaspersky on the order of the UN’s International Telecommunications Union which had asked the labs to do a thorough investigation about the infection which was spoiling hard drives in almost all the Middle East nations. As it was a completely different kind of infection so, Kaspersky was recommended to deeply investigate about all the aspects of the matter.

This formed the base for the discovery of Flame however, the fact can’t be denied that it came out to be much more complex and surprising than ever expected by the researchers.

Kamlyuk has repeated many a times that Flame is too much complex and intricate as a piece of malware. The analysis of this malware is still not complete as its 20MB package is under analysis as the secrets of this malware are rolling out very slowly.

The Flame has been compared to the Stuxnet  which was used in the attack which had completely destroyed Iranian nuclear facilities last year. The weight of Stuxnet used during the attack was just a few hundred kilobytes. Till the present investigations on this malware, it has been revealed that it’s very sophisticated software. Due to its level of sophistication, Kaspersky thinks that it may have been built by some government scientists but still there is no idea of the government which may be involved in this.

The complicated part of the investigation has been to find out where all the huge data goes which is gathered by Flame from the infected systems. Though many control servers have been found but all the domains associated with them are registered with fake identities which further toughen the investigation process.

Flame can steal hard drive contents, screenshots as well as keystrokes.Not only this, it can suck in more data using the system microphone and Bluetooth radio.  

Kamlyuk calls the large volume of stolen data the limiting factor for Flame. It’s also believed by the investigators that Flame deletes itself from the system after fully exploiting them which makes the detection more difficult.

Flame is considered to be a dangerous cyberwar element which has been floating since the year 2010 and affecting the systems. If the use of Stuxnet marked the beginning of intense cyberwar, Fame is considered to be an advanced malware with worse motive. The worst part is that much more dangerous cyber weapons are expected in the coming year which really frightens the cyber world.
