'Super-powerful' Flame worm actually boring BLOATWARE


Re: This article reads strangely, at least to a non-professional in the security field

Agreed. It seems the significance of Flame would be in it's apparent (but not really known) effectiveness...and possibly over a rather extended period of time. Being small, creating a large botnet, or being innovative, getting pats on the back from The Register, obviously weren't primary design goals.
