Iranian officials have acknowledged that a sophisticated virus has infected computers across the country and, echoing the conclusions of security researchers, suggested that the malicious code is related to the virus that damaged centrifuges in an Iranian nuclear facility two years ago.

Kaspersky also has detected a few infections in Europe and the United States, but it is unclear whether those reflect people in the Middle East accessing the Internet through U.S. and European servers to circumvent Web filters, said Kaspersky Lab senior researcher Roel Schouwenberg.

Security researchers say Flame is capable to logging keyboard strokes, activating microphones to record conversations and taking screen shots.
