The latest high-profile Internet threat is called Flamer. As with Stuxnet and Duqu, this code was not likely to have been written by a single individual but by an organised, well-funded group of people working to a clear set of directives.
While our analysis is currently ongoing, the primary functionality is to obtain information and data. This is not unique and by itself would not make Flamer significant. But when combined with the complexity of the code, the identified targets, and the possible link to recent threats described by the Iran National CERT, Flamer becomes a very noteworthy threat.
Join our Symantec’s Security Response experts in this webcast which we will discuss the latest information about the threat and what it means in terms of the wider threat landscape.
