HermeticWiper malware victims are now reporting ransomware attacks too


Cybersecurity researchers from Microsoft Threat Intelligence Center (MSTIC) have noted companies across Ukraine and Poland being hit by two separate attacks: in one, a disk wiper called HermeticWiper was deployed, while in the other, a ransomware called Prestige. 

“Despite using similar deployment techniques, the [Prestige] campaign is distinct from recent destructive attacks leveraging […] Foxblade (HermeticWiper) that have impacted multiple critical infrastructure organizations in Ukraine over the last two weeks,” the researchers explained.
