ENISA Report: The Threat from Flamer

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

ENISA has published a short analysis of the threat from the Flamer spying virus.

Flamer reminds us of the weaknesses in our cyber defences and underlines why ENISA's work on cyber security is so important.

Flamer, according to technical analyses of various security teams, is a stealthy information stealer hitting hundreds of targeted PC users across the Middle East. However, it should not be dismissed on the grounds of geography or numbers affected.

Though, there is no direct threat for the vast majority of users, Flamer serves as an opportunity to learn about the threats we are facing and as a reminder to continue improving cyber security across Europe.

Rather it should be seen as an opportunity to learn about the threats we are facing and what we must do to heighten cyber security across Europe.

ENISA's short analysis and collation of available information about Flamer illustrates why the work that goes on across the European Union to improve cyber security is so important, and where we must come together to do more.
