This morning Iran now says it has defeated behind a sophisticated computer virus dubbed the flame but analysts say that is unlikely.
Because the virus can be turned on and off remotely and he never know whether it's on or off.
And number two flame was written -- -- used by video game design as the same code used in games like angry bugs but he's the real question.
Which country is behind the flame attack.
David I tell.
Immunity ink CEO he joins us now from Miami David welcome the program.
You know something about this and I and many about -- is do not so let's get basic Kia.
What's this thinking about this elude the flame code written by the same kind of guy is -- -- wrote.
Angry goods you -- some of the connection.
Well the -- just.
The underlying programming language that scripted and and you script.
Things like in python -- little.
And as you know software development like all other.
And a prizes is all about getting more for your money.
So whoever wrote flame or whatever they're calling it today is definitely trying to get more for less people.
And that's really what you're seeing here and in terms of I ran defeating at yes -- requesting did if you believe them -- -- I just defeated at the U.
Now I I would say that when you look at something like flame that when you call it cyber weapon -- can't clouds the point because flame itself is not cyber weapon.
The cyber weapon is the team behind the carpenters that built that up.
The engineers who run it who maintain it it's like anything expensive.
-- will know we're a financial program laden is any direct relationship when he saw -- that from this but.
Two was is a new form of war fat and I wanna know who's best -- Without someone on this program is says he's the Chinese.
You -- that I would disagree obviously I think.
You know we built that we bought it's an American game out there but nonetheless we're also the best -- getting packed.
So that that sort of it to edge sword when it comes down to get a hold -- a second I want to note that visit visit team of people who put this thing flame together.
We don't know who they are we don't know which government there working formal which come today -- it but I want you to guests.
-- want you to tell Democrat who do you think assembles the best team.
Why don't -- I think flame as the best thing out there so.
And maybe with the -- It's it's certainly a possibility it could be Israelis that could be the French could be drowned -- why we're doing judgment until I don't dance around the issue you know this business -- on the inside of it who the best guys and having a -- the Iranians.
At the Iranians at this point time based on what you see here -- say it wasn't just -- -- targeted.
And you might look at the Israelis for they're certainly not denying it -- up prime minister come on say that.
It was certainly one of their major thrusts.
I not to believe them I think they tend to carry a small stick and speak loudly.
So if you had to guess I think people on an -- gonna say it's it's going to be.
And English speaking nations I was say okay.
Do you think it will be it will have to be a very launch team at a very sophisticated team that beat -- That beats it I think Iranians have a good team I don't think they will be it.
I think you know of these that we're looking at -- flame is really the very tip of the iceberg.
And so while they call it you know extremely sophisticated very large we're talking not something that's about the size of five pictures from your iPhone.
So it's not really very large do you do -- is it real world software is just the kind of thing that you do you -- on this kind of virus.
We we tend to build things that are more like get encounter them and so when you have like a bank for example.
The banks -- higher also to people like.
My company in order to find things that could hurt -- men and try to protect themselves look at your on the defensive end of it cannot be -- after.
But look it's it's on -- -- both lists I'm sure it doesn't.
Just like it -- they find out how to do it to us.
All right so we appreciate you being with us if you find out anything more about this we -- we appreciate your insight David I tell thanks for joining us appreciate --
