In January 2019, Kaspersky has discovered a supply chain attack that affects ASUS computers. Dubbed Operation ShadowHammer, the operation took place from June to November 2018. It is similar to other supply chain attacks on Netsarang and CCleaner. Around 500 thousands of computers could have been potentially impacted, although the malware seems to have been only targeting a few hundred (around 660 identified so far) specific MAC addresses. ASUS has now released a fix and a diagnostic tool.
