Flame Malware

The discovery of the Flame malware that targets Middle Eastern countries, predominantly Iran, has brought politically motivated threats into the spot light again.

In this talk I will discuss the Flame malware and contrast it with other politically motivated threats we have seen. I will discuss how Flame was discovered, what it is capable of and give updates on the latest analysis. In addition I will talk about the increasing use of cyber espionage and what that may mean for software developers.

Flame is peculiar in that it was written with a combination of C++, Lua and sqlite. I will show how the threat uses these technologies and how that differs from the malware we see every day.

Speaker: Liam O Murchu

Liam O Murchu is a manager of Security Response at Symantec. He has appeared on CBS 60 Minutes about Stuxnet virus. He has also presented about Stuxnet at Los Angeles chapters of OWASP and ISSA.
