ESET: IsaacWiper and HermeticWizard: New (data) wiper and worm targeting Ukraine
ESET researchers have uncovered a new wiper that attacked Ukrainian organisations. On 22 February a HermeticWiper targeted at least 5 Ukrainian organisations; HermeticWiper makes a system inoperable by corrupting its data. On 24 February, ESET detected another wiper in a Ukrainian governmental network called ‘IsaacWiper’. Researchers are currently assessing links (if any) to HermeticWiper. According to the ESET researchers, IsaacWiper has been seen in an organisation that was not affected by HermeticWiper. Moreover, ESET has not found any connection with a known threat actor.
