Flame, is being hailed as the most sophisticated malware ever created. According to Kaspersky Lab, Flame is a backdoor Trojan with worm-like features that allow it to propagate itself on local networks and removable media. When a system is infected, the malware is capable of a number of operations, including taking screenshots, recording audio conversations and intercepting network traffic.

To perform a quick manual check for Flame, users can search for the file ~DEB93D.tmp. If it is present, the computer either is or has been infected with flame. Also, users can check the registry key HKLM_SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\ Authentication Packages. If mssecmgr.ocx or authpack.ocx is present, this is another indication the computer is infected, per Kaspersky Lab.
