n May 2012, our team participated in the analysis of an as yet unknown malware, which we internally call sKyWIper. Based on the information initially received, we understood that the malware is an important piece of a targeted attack. When we started the analysis, we did not know how many countries were affected, but we s uspected that it was not limited to a single country. Our suspicion was based on indicati ons that pieces of the malware was probably identified and uploaded from European part ies onto binary analysis sites in the past. During the investigation, we received informa tion about systems infected by sKyWIper in other countries, including Hungary, our home cou ntry. Hence, the suspicion became evidence, and this made it clear for us that our fi ndings must be disclosed by publishing this report.
