ICS-CERT Revises Recommendations to Avoid Shamoon Infections

Most publicly known malware attacks are disruptive in nature, for example causing the interruption of online banking services or taking websites temporarily offline. Few attacks cause actual physical damage to computers where hard drives are damaged and data lost or destroyed.

The Shamoon virus is one notable exception. Considered a state-sponsored attack, Shamoon infected the Saudi oil production company Aramco and damaged upwards of 30,000 computers last August. The virus overwrote the Master Boot Record on tens of thousands of machines, rendering them useless.
