North Korean Hacking Group Blamed for Bank Theft of Over $100 Million
Cybersecurity firm FireEye reported this week that a hacking group with links to North Korea is responsible for stealing around $100 million from various financial institutions around the world.
FireEye’s report said that there seems to be three North Korea-backed cyber criminal groups, each operating with distinct roles. While the media often use the term “Lazarus” as an umbrella term, there are actually three groups: Lazarus, TEMP. Hermit, and APT38. Security researchers say that the first two are responsible for disruptive and espionage attacks respectively, the third group is typically associate financial cybercrime and heists.
