I've been getting a kick out of all the #flamefacts going around Twitter, especially the tweets that place Flame at the scene of some of history's major events (and fiction's major events, too). One of my Twitter connections, a Brazilian infosec practitioner who goes by the handle @anchisesbr, is full of them this morning.\tSince we can always use a chuckle on Mondays, I thought I'd share the witticisms he's sent me and some others:\t\t\tMayan calendar ends in 2012 because they predicted\u00a0#flame malware\u00a0#flamefacts -- @anchisesbr\t\t\tA beta version of\u00a0#flame\u00a0malware blew up Chernobyl reactor #flamefacts\u00a0 -- @anchisesbr\t\t\tFirst version of\u00a0#flame\u00a0created in 1997 and took down an entire alien fleet at Independence Day\u00a0#flamefacts -- @anchisesbr\t\t\t#flame\u00a0stole LinkedIn passwords (and\u00a0#flame\u00a0has a module to decrypt them!)\u00a0#flamefacts\u00a0-- @anchisesbr\t\t\t#Flame infected Bruce Schneier's computer #flamefacts #schneierfacts\tWhen Flame first started dominating the headlines a couple weeks ago, the barbs were about who created this so-called child of Stuxnet and Duqu. Some of my favorites were:\t\t\t@gattaca: We here at Liquidmatrix discovered #Flame in 1984. #funfauxfacts\t\t\t@gattaca: To be fair, my ancestors found the code for #Flame in a cave painting.\t\t\t@threatagent: BBQ was discovered a few hours after #Flame\t\t\tAnother tweeter to to @gattaca: Dude, I discovered #flame in 1976. We shared a placenta.\tIf you don't have a sense of humor after focusing on information security for a few years, your ticker probably won't make it.\tEnjoy the week, folks.
