Attack vector
Definitely complex. Will be interested to see as more comes out about it what the initial attack vector was.

Re: Attack vector
There are so many intriguing elements about Regin: the platform itself, the way it hides among the victims to talk to the C&C server, and of course the nations that are conspicuously missing from the victim list. ;-)

And that they haven't yet found the initial attack vector/s is also interesting. What, if any, 0days were used?

A lot still to come.

heuristic
So basically, Symantec is saying that their heuristic and other antiviruses' heuristics are useless. Except well known viruses/malware, they can't catch anything.

Re: heuristic
I'm always curious about how long it takes a security firm to identify a new malware sample they find on a customer's machine as an APT-type threat....Symantec has been studying Regin since last fall.

Re: heuristic
That depends on their level of competence. The heuristics monitor application behavior and communcation. If the heuristic does not "understand", it sends to the antivirus(malware)maker for human to "research". Some "researchers" are really good researchers. Some takes them forever. And some have no clue :)

Re: heuristic
And what we tend to forget is it all depends on who their customers are. =)
