    A very interesting read: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/47590214/ns/technology_and_science-security/#.T8PbuUVYtyU

    Most of us probably aren't affected by anything of the sort, but it's really interesting that cyber warfare is becoming more and more prevalent.

    "Flame can gather data files, remotely change settings on computers, turn on PC microphones to record conversations, take screen shots and log instant messaging chats."

    And if it took five years to find this, think of all the things that haven't been discovered/released to the public yet.

    I am very interested in things like Stuxnet thanks for the share. This is the type of thing I read or watch documentaries about for fun whenever I have time, what a geek!

    Just saying Kaspersky FTW because they discovered it and it's a very good antivirus in general...

    When you see posts like "10,000 human visitors guaranteed for $50" or whatever.. You ever wonder how they do that?
