North Korea’s ‘Lazarus’ Likely Behind New Wave of Cyberattacks
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un looks at the latest combat and technical equipment, made by unit 1501 of the Korean People's Army, during his visit to the unit

Symantec says it has digital evidence that hack group Lazarus is behind the recent sophisticated cyberattacks on 31 countries.
Symantec says North Korean hacking group Lazarus is responsible for the recent cyberattacks on organizations based in 31 countries, Reuters reports. Symantec says the attackers are now using new sophisticated techniques and this is seen as a “dangerous development.”

Lazarus’ involvement was first suspected last month after a string of cyberattacks on Polish banking sector.

The latest campaign employs a watering hole attack in which loader software installs malicious programs on websites. The malware is programmed to attack only particular IP addresses that belong to residents of 31 countries and from 104 specific organizations. These countries include Poland, US, Mexico, Brazil, and Chile.

Lazarus is suspected in a series of attacks beginning 2009 – including the $81 million Bangladesh Bank cyberheist in 2016 and the attack on Sony Pictures in 2014.
