Iran's Maher Computer Emergency Response Team Coordination Center issued a warning, regarding new sort of malware, ISNA reported.

According to the center's report, the new malware continuously erases data from the hard disk drives.

Previously, this malware could not be detected by the malware-detecting programs, and the center said this new data-sweeping malware should be included into anti-malware programs' databases as soon as possible.

The center said that despite its simplicity of design and functionality, it has been effective destroying the hard disks, without being revealed by the antivirus and anti-malware programs.
