Researchers from cybersecurity firm FireEye have warned that an APT (advanced persistent threat) group called Reaper is using various malware and zero-day vulnerabilities against countries within the interests of the North Korean government.

The group, also known as APT37, is said to be primarily targeting South Korea, and may now be expanding its targets to include Japan, Vietnam, and the Middle East. However, the group has also been observed to strike industrial players in the chemical, military, electronics, aerospace, automotive, healthcare, and manufacturing sectors.

Reaper has been active since 2012 and mainly conducts surveillance for North Korea.
