New disk wiper malware linked to attacks in South Korea

Quote:
A new piece of malware designed to delete files from hard disk drives and render computers unable to boot targets South Korean users, according to researchers from security firm Symantec.

The new hard-drive wiper malware is called Trojan.Korhigh and was found by Symantec researchers during their investigations into cyberattacks in South Korea. "Trojan.Korhigh has the functionality to systematically delete files and overwrite the Master Boot Record (MBR) on the compromised computer, rendering it unusable," the Symantec researchers said Thursday in a blog post.
