Damn Graboid's grabbed me Spoof...

London - The former MI6 cryptographer has been identified with a sophisticated cyber worm that targeted the Iran Petroleum ministry and its oleaginous terminals.

A secret report into surreptitious palm-greasing says key signatures of the W32.Flamer worm's creators have been traced to an elite group of specialist spooks.

They met at US cyberwarfare seminars for the international espionage community's high flyers whose IDs were shielded by campaigns talking up the Stuxnet virus.

The report's findings call the W32.Flamer the 'Graboid' of all cyber worms in a reference to massive burrowing worm-like creatures from the 1990 movie Tremors.

The film's director was once quoted as saying that Graboids were based on the fabled Mongolian Death Worm, a Gobi desert cryptid that spews acid and has an uncanny ability to 'taser' its prey a bit like the giant electric eel Electrophorus electricus.

Commenting on the report an MI6 source said 'WTF?' as other intelligence agencies branded the story 'bollox'.

"Well, they would, wouldn't they...to borrow a Christine Keeler espionage trial throwaway line," a QM-NewsCorpse stringer said this afternoon.

MI5 defector Sir Percy Snott-Cabbage is 69.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
