According to Kaspersky’s security labs, the Flame and Stuxnet worms, both developed to tear apart critical IT infrastructure in the countries opposed to American interests, shared the same platform,at least once, in the early stages.
Kaspersky’s research discovered that Flame and Stuxnet worms were actually related. Although it is unclear whether they were separated brothers or distant cousins, they definitely originated from the same source in the early stages.
Kaspersky discovered that a module from an early version of Stuxnet warm (Resource 207) was a Flame plugin – an encrypted DLL file with an executable file similar to Flame's code. Then the Duqu Trojan emerged in reports, though it was developed as a backdoor rather than to hack infrastructure. Kaspersky noted similarities between Duqu and Stuxnet and concluded that they were both made with the same attack platform – the Tilded.
In other words, when Stuxnet was created in 2009, Flame already existed, and at least one of its modules was used in Stuxnet – the one designed to spread the infection by USB. Kaspersky confirmed that it was identical in both viruses. However, the plugin module in question was later removed from the worm and replaced by the one exploiting different vulnerabilities. This proves that there were two development teams working independently, but some experts believe that the cooperation could have continued.
According to Kaspersky’s chief security expert, they are confident that Flame and Tilded were different platforms used to create multiple cyber weapons. Despite the fact that they had different architectures, the teams are believed to share source code in the early stages of development. The Democrats were strangely enthusiastic to admit Stuxnet’s responsibility, but Israeli officials claimed that Israeli intelligence started a cyber campaign several years earlier, in order to damage Iran’s nuclear program.
Meanwhile, the press pointed out that its sources understood the sensitivity and the timing of the matter, perhaps giving a nod to the election campaign. Therefore, no-one from the researchers and reporters isn’t going to be dragged into a battle over taking credit.

|who ever posted this was a idiot.|
There has been speculation that the Stuxnet virus was created by the United States or Israel. After an 18-month investigation and several interviews with American, European, and Israeli officials, it seems that the rumors were true. The virus was created in a joint effort with the U.S. and Israel, during the Bush administration.
virus, codenamed Olympic Games, was passed from President Bush to President Obama. Obama knew about each attack made against the Iranian nuclear program, deciding this was a good alternative to a physical war. By bringing the Israelis into the program, it allowed them to see there was an effort made to stop a threat to their country. The U.S. also needed Israel's resources to get the virus into the enrichment sites at Natanz. This also helped to stop a physical confrontation in the Middle East.
|What is the Height of Hubris and hypocrisy is the USA creating a CYBER unit @ Fort Meade to fight against foreign computer attacks when they themselves are the protagonists.|
The sasser worm had 12 variations 4 made by the creator and 8 more derivations created by others,it is no surprise that variations on a virus are made as once the basics are covered and a program does what it is made for customisation is inevitable.
|The only flaw in the Americans logic with these .dll viruses are that they don`t work in Linux and a lot of Asia and other countries use Linux and are unaffected by it,they do work on Windows systems though so they really need to pull their heads in when creating viruses lest they find themselves on the receiving end and reap what they sow.|
|this was all discovered in 2009 so kaspersky is a little behind in the times and if you want a good firewall use comodo internet security suite with firewall and anti-virus free for single use and pro version only 4 dollars.|
Free version is commercial grade firewall and anti virus with full licence and regular updates,once installed and updated it will only allow what you tell it to and sandbox and alert you of any threats so that anything dangerous is never run on your computer without your express command,I use it on all windows install buisness and domestic.
