Flamer has been out in the wild since cca. 2007, with a MS signed certificate, and the first IT security organization that decides to bring it to public attention is a Russian company, and the first removal tool is from a Romanian company.

Isn't this a bit strange? Isn't it more likely that this NA-designed spyware targetting the Middle East was released with the tacit agreement of Western security companies and it only became known because the Russians, for some reason, decided they would not play the game?
