An American program of increasingly sophisticated attacks on the computer systems that ran Iran’s main nuclear enrichment facilities, allegedly responsible for production of the Flame cyber collection platform and the Stuxnet cyber weapon.
Flame is malware developed under Olympic Games as a US-Israeli collaboration presumably targeting Iranian nuclear facilities. It is designed to replicate across even highly secure networks, then control everyday computer functions to send data back to its creators.
Cyberspace provides relatively small-scale actors an opportunity to become players in economic espionage. Underresourced governments or corporations could build relationships with hackers to develop customized malware or remote-access exploits to steal sensitive US economic or technology information. This report gives special attention to foreign collectors’ exploitation of cyberspace, while not excluding other established tactics and methods used in foreign economic collection and industrial espionage.
