A collision attack!? Who could've seen that one coming?
Ad hominem:"It is kind of awe inspiring to think whoever created it used an entirely new collision attack for malware instead of say publishing it and becoming famous."
If the authors of Flame had received help from microsoft, it would never have installed properly.
The above conclusions point to the existence of two independent developer teams, which can be referred to as ”Team F” (Flame) and ”Team D” (Tilded). Each of these teams has been developing its own platform since 2007-2008 at the latest.
In 2009, part of the code from the Flame platform was used in Stuxnet. We believe that source code was used, rather than complete binary modules. Since 2010, the platforms have been developing independently from each other, although there has been interaction at least at the level of exploiting the same vulnerabilities.
