Yes, a bit.


To quote another security researcher:
"I don't know if Iran has mastered the nuclear cycle. But they appear to have mastered the 24 hours news cycle."
(I can dig out the proper credits if needed)

A true targeted attack is much more stealthy. Flame seems to be bloatware.

There is however an interesting twist to the story: there is a removal tool by the ir. CERT.
It will actually copy over all kinds of things and send it over encrypted .
Don't know what to think of that...
