Flame virus for Windows targets Middle East – an annotated graphic

Malicious software gets uber-malicious: the Flame computer virus has reportedly 20 times as much code as the Stuxnet worm that attacked Iran’s nuclear program in 2010. The accompanying graphic here documents the current spread of Flame as it blazes a trail across the world, scorching a virulent path through the internet, turning up the heat on anti-virus companies, etc. Sorry, got a bit carried away with the whole flame metaphor there.

Anyway, click on the graphic for an expanded view.
