Threat intelligence as a discipline is the continuous pursuit of cyber-situational awareness. The idea that there are threat actors out there, unbeknownst to us, operating in the shadows, with impunity is something that drives researchers to hunt further and further.

Flame (aka Flamer or sKyWIper) was the object of extensive research and fascination by the security community circa 2011. Flame proved to be one of the most daring threat actors ever discovered, and researchers contributed extensive analyses on this modular cyber-espionage platform.

This whitepaper investigates the connection between Flame and the O.G. threat actor super group GOSSIPGIRL.
