North Korea’s Lazarus Targets Energy Firms with Three RATs

North Koreas

According to Cisco, the North Korean Lazarus hacking squad has been using three RATs to target energy corporations in Canada, the US, and Japan for around six months.

Lazarus has been running high-profile assaults since at least 2009, going by the names Hidden Cobra and Ronin. Notable attacks include the theft of USD 600 million worth of cryptocurrencies by Ronin and the USD 100 million hack of Harmony’s Horizon Bridge. The group has targeted different groups, including defense and governmental organizations, as well as businesses in the chemical industry, with fraudulent employment offers as part of some of its most recent efforts.

The United States said in July that it will pay up to USD 10 million in rewards for information leading to the arrest of those connected to Lazarus.
