HermeticWiper malware victims are now reporting ransomware attacks too

Computer



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.
