Hard drive-wiping malware part of new wave of threats targeting SKorea
Amid a new wave of attacks hitting government and media networks in South Korea, researchers have uncovered yet another piece of malware that destroys sensitive hard drive data and renders computers unusable.
Trojan.Korhigh, as the new wiper program is called by security firm Symantec, contains the same kind of functionality that simultaneously shut down the networks of a half-dozen banks and broadcasters in March. Like the earlier Jojka malware, Korhigh can permanently destroy stored data and overwrite a hard drive's master boot record, which contains information required for computers to reboot.
