Super Sophisticated Malware "Regin" has been Spying on Users for Years

Symantec has released a report on a malware under the name of “Regin”. This malware has been online since 2008, and has gone undetected since then. According to Re/Code who interviewed Symantec, the origin of the malware has remained unclear.

It was recently confirmed that Regin Malware is linked to being used as a spy tool for GCHQ and NSA Operations. So, linked to the British and US Spy Agencies.

is the NSA behind Regin? Has Symantec uncovered another one of the U.S' Malware schemes, or is it China this time?

maybe it's neither--maybe it's the criminal underground gathering information on suspects/victims/anyone they can.

The sophistication of this Malware suggests a subtler and cleverer creator than that of the normal malware.

What do you think?

Wouldn't be the first time the nsa have pulled this crap. Remember the virus that targeted Iran's infrastructure.

Yeah, Stuxnet. It was a malware made by the US in cooperation with Israel to target Iran's nuclear missile programs. Crazy stuff.
