SkyWiper / Viper / Flame is the newest Malware to hit the scene. It is shaking up the threatware analysis community for it’s massive size. Kaspersky labs, a Russian semi-legit security firm suggests that it could take them up to ten years to full understand what it can do.
The malware is almost up to 20 Megabytes and contains code similar to but not identical to other forms of malware like Zeuss, Redkit, or Stuxnet and Stuxnet’s big brother DuQu which both started roughly in 2008.
The new malware contains bits of code in the LUA language, which is unusual for malware of this type. Flame seems to be targetting Iranian computers of oil companies and other such industries. It can do many things among which it has been accused of wiping info after stealing it, monitoring Skype chats and snooping on the microphone activity.
