Iran Finds Cure to Malware Attack

Posted on: May 30th, 2012 by Tetrabyte No Comments

Iran has found a cure to the malware known as ‘Flame’ – a sophisticated piece of malware designed to infiltrate any network it can and steal data.

The malware injects itself into a network, scans to see what ant-virus software there is on the network and then adjusts itself accordingly to be invisible to the anti-virus software.

Iran has developed tools which can detect Flame and remove the malware from infected machines.

The malware was discovered by a number of security firms working together after thousands of machines hard drives have been miraculously wiped across the Middle East.
