I wouldn't be concerned about this malware unless you reside in South Korea. It's a targeted attack by North Korea against South Korean interests. Also MW Word, etc. only supports the 1997 ver. of HWP attachments. Any newer vers. of HWP are not supported:

Note: Microsoft Office, OpenOffice, and LibreOffice can open HWP files only if they were created with Hangul '97 - newer versions of the .HWP file cannot be opened with these applications.

I agree.
This malicious code is a malicious code to attack Korea. However, ESET is a global group. ESET is doing business in Korea. If so, HWP malware should be analyzed and detected.

And Korea is using Hangul products in addition to MS Office. So HWP file protection is required. If you do not protect it, Koreans will not use ESET products. I want ESET to be the most famous antivirus product in Korea. So this is to write this article.
