Iran produces software to detect and neutralize Flame virus

the newly detected malware ‘flame’ was different from other viruses and was more destructive than stuxnet

The head of Information Technology Organization of Iran says the country’s experts have managed to produce antivirus software that can spot and remove the newly detected computer virus Flame.

Ali Hakim Javadi said Wednesday that the antivirus defense was produced by the MAHER center, the Iranian national computer emergency response team.

Javadi said the indigenous antivirus software is capable of detecting the virus and cleaning up the infected computers.

He rejected reports that a top Russian virus-hunting agency was the one that detected the malware, saying it was first spotted by the MAHER center.

He said that the malware was different from other viruses and was more destructive than Stuxnet.

Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Ya'alon strongly hinted Tuesday that Israel was involved in creating the computer virus to sabotage Iran’s nuclear activities.

Ya'alon expressed support for the creation of the virus and similar tools, arguing that it was reasonable for anyone who sees Iran as a threat to take such steps.
