A Russian-based internet security firm working on the Flame virus has identified Turkey as a prime suspect for the server location, daily Hürriyet has reported.
 
Kaspersky Lab, which identified the virus, discovered around 80 servers that were using the virus, all of which were located in four different countries: Turkey, Germany, Italy and Vietnam.
 
Turkey had the strongest server until several days after the discovery, when it moved to Germany.
 
The Flame virus hit several countries including Israel and Syria recently, but Iran recived the heaviest hit with over 180 attacks on its systems. The motive behind the cyber attack remains unknown.
