Read story published today. Flame was one of the more recent malwares created to hack computers in the middle east.  The article talks about the sophisticated programming of the malware and the creators behind.

“Flame is a reconnaissance tool. It can grab images of users’ computer screens, record e-mails and instant-messaging chats, turn on microphones remotely, and monitor keystrokes and network traffic. Even if an infected device is not connected to the Internet, Flame is capable of spreading to other devices by looking for Bluetooth-enabled devices nearby or Internet-connected devices in a local network, according to researchers at Kaspersky Lab”.dff

How long is it going to be before the targets are corporations who need to protect highly secretive, confidential information? Do you care?
