I, personally, would differentiate between complex and sophisticated.

That is just one line of code, sure. But I can't imagine what it took to get that line of code there, and everything that comes with that. How many people were involved, PhD's, years of experience in a range of fields, and not just years of experience in any field but experience in fields like espionage.

My uneducated brain would still put "most sophisticated software ever written" in the hyperbole box, but even then I'm hesitating.

yeah. in order to agree with that "most sophisticated software" claim i think he'd need to compare it to some other candidates for that title.
