"Flame: The world's most complex computer virus"

   "Experts said the massive malicious software was 20 times more powerful
    than other known cyber warfare programmes including the Stuxnet virus
    and could only have been created by a state.  It is the third cyber
    attack weapon targeting systems in the Middle East to be exposed in
    recent years."

A couple of notes. First, the supposed virus is actually 20MB in size,
not 20GB as currently claimed in the linked article. Also, I tend to
view the details of these reports with skepticism given the enormous
level of purposeful propaganda and disinformation in this context.
