+ - Fox News Ties 'Flame' Malware to Angry Birds->

Submitted by eldavojohn
eldavojohn (898314) writes "The title of this hard-hitting piece of journalism reads 'Powerful ‘Flame’ cyberweapon tied to popular Angry Birds game' and opens with 'The most sophisticated and powerful cyberweapon uncovered to date was written in the LUA computer language, cyber security experts tell Fox News — the same one used to make the incredibly popular Angry Birds game.' The rest of the details that are actually pertinent to the story follow that important message. The graphic for this story? Perhaps a map of Iran or the LUA logo or maybe the stereotyped evil hacker in a ski mask? Nope, all Angry Birds. Describing LUA as "Gamer Code," Fox for some reason (popularity?) selects Angry Birds from an insanely long list in their article implying guilt-by-shared-development-language. I'm not sure if explaining machine language to them would alleviate the perceived problem or cause them to burn their desktops in the streets and launch a new crusade to protect the children."
