In response to this useful article by Kaspersky, this page now includes information on wipers, which often resemble or masquerade as ransomware but are essentially just destructive.

Kaspersky Threat Post: 

Secrets of the Wiper: Inside the World’s Most Destructive Malware. “Shamoon, Black Energy, Destover, ExPetr/Not Petya and Olympic Destroyer: All of these wiper malwares, and others like them, have a singular purpose of destroying systems and/or data, usually causing great financial and reputational damage to victim companies.”

ESET has previously published quite a lot of material on Black Energy which can be found here. Of course, other articles are available, but I get to see most of the ESET articles before they’re published, so I’m more aware of them.
