According to El Reg, there is "general consensus that Flame is the most elaborate malware threat ever uncovered, and that it was almost certainly developed by a state-sponsored team." Is is not currently detected by any antivirus software and while it is vaguely related to Stuxnet and Duqu, it is much more complicated. Perhaps more notably, the motivations behind its creation and the targets of its infection are much less clear."
