Flame (also known as the Skywiper or Flamer worm) has been out in the wild for an estimated three years. Flamer is made of a number of modules, totalling up to 20 MB in code size. This is five times larger than the typical size of these malware programs.
Flamer collects everything from text, screenshots to voice input data and transmits them in a compressed form to its creators. While Kaspersky has found out that the Flame has affected systems predominantly in the Middle East, you might want to check your computer for the worm and remove it if it does exist.
Thankfully, BitDefender has released a Flame removal tool for both 32 bit and 64 bit computers that detects if your system is infected by the Flamer worm. Download the Flame removal tool from here and run it.
You’ll see a window like the one in the screenshot below open, and you can hit ‘Start Scan’ to make BitDefender check for a Flame infection in your computer.
If the Flamer worm wasn’t detected, the scan will stop without a warning!
