A new wave of cyberattacks is hitting the middle east, in particular, Saudi Arabia. The attacks are mainly carried out by a modified version of the infamous Shamoon malware, called Shamoon 2. Similarities between Shamoon and Shamoon 2 are striking.


In this talk, we present a technical analysis of Shamoon 2 malware, in particular, how it propagates and how it harms infected stations and we discuss recommendations and best practices to stay and keep others safe from similar attacks.
