The 'Flame' malware using Lua?

I was reading about the 'Flame' malware, which is compared in the news to Stuxnet and Duqu and noticed Lua code in one of its code fragments.

This malware is described as "one of the most complex threats ever discovered. It's big and incredibly sophisticated. It pretty much redefines the notion of cyberwar and cyberespionage." The same FAQ confirms that there are about 3000 lines of Lua code with "many parts of Flame have high order logic" written in it. This analysis provides more details on pages 46-49 about used Lua scripts.
