Discovery of Flame and MiniFlame revealed a cyber-espionage operation targeting Lebanon. But many similar threats have yet to surface, say security experts.
“Given researchers’ findings that the Flame and Gauss malware appears to have connections to Stuxnet, and U.S. government officials have confirmed, anonymously, that Stuxnet was designed by the United States as part of the so-called “Olympic Games” project, it’s obvious that the U.S. government isn’t afraid to use malware for espionage purposes. But that raises numerous questions, including who should have the right to use such software, as well as what rights other nations should have to respond to it.”
