Updates to Specific Ransomware Families and Types
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.
