North Korean Hacker Group Targeted Crypto Firm Using LinkedIn Ad: Cybersecurity Report
According to a report by F-secure, a Finland-based cybersecurity company, hackers from the infamous Lazarus group targeted a crypto firm in an attack last year.
U.N. experts estimate that over $316 million in crypto was stolen by North Korea-linked hackers last year.
Ethereum developer Virgil Griffith is likely headed to trial on charges of violating international sanctions, after a Tuesday hearing where a federal judge clarified what's being argued.
The hackers allegedly stole over $1.3 billion overall through various schemes.
The motion, filed by Brian Klein, claims the indictment of Griffith doesn't "specify any alleged overt facts," and contains no actual allegation of fact.
Prosecutors say the 280 accounts hold crypto stolen from two exchange hacks last year.
The U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Asset Control has added two individuals and 20 bitcoin addresses to its sanctions list, accusing them of being part of the North Korea-affiliated Lazarus Group.
