CWmike writes: "Although the media have been reporting the recently discovered and formally ousted spy tool, Stuxnet, and its intel-collecting brother, Flame, as powerful and miraculous tools, hackers and others in the industry aren't impressed. Flame and its multiple payloads have been around for at least a decade in various combinations of malware and software-for-sale. Known as RATs, or remote access tools, these programs are as complex and extraordinary as Flame in their data stealing abilities. Paid and free programs are available that can capture the users' screenshots and keystrokes, download files, view webcams, listen to laptop microphones, and offer other features that allow you full control on the user's system unbeknownst to them. Brandon Gregg describes a few that investigators can start using now to quickly gather evidence of wrong-doing within their organizations' walls.
