GeneralAbout "Flame" Pin

I just read an article about a "recently discovered" trojan-virus called "Flame". It seems to be a very good developed piece. Karpersky says they needed about 6 months to analyze "Stuxnet" and it seems the new one is about 20 times harder.

At the moment the biggest infection is in the middle east, but they are afraid it will expand worldwide.

It seems it has more than 20 Mb tool-kit apps spreading around the whole operative system, capable to activate microfon and record sounds, make bitmaps depending on opened software or visited webs, compress files, encrypt and even make a tiny virtual enviroment.

Lets see when will it be "desinfectable" and what's the next coming up.

Edit: Sorry about missing clicketies. I just made a quick search in google, at the moment I only find results on german newspapers.
Regards.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpfull answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
