Check out this analysis of the flame worm. That's a very professional product, built with a very nice tool set.

Re: World's most complex malware discovered - after two years in the wild

The article only mentions Windows characteristics (DLLs, MS vulnerabilities) so I assume it's limited to Windows.

Edit. The name is also a bit of a hint: Worm.Win32.Flame.

I wonder if it will get broken by updates. Even malware is getting bloated these days.

Hmm, I always thought that Windows is malware. So Flame and its ilk don't really change anything.
