US Agencies Publish List of North Korea’s Alleged Crypto Crimes
The US government urged countermeasures to stymie North Korea's billion-dollar cybercrime campaigns.
Prosecutors say the 280 accounts hold crypto stolen from two exchange hacks last year.
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.
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.
Notorious hacking group Lazarus is said to be increasing its efforts to steal cryptocurrency from traders and industry professionals during the COVID-19 crisis.
Brian Klein has spent the last few years representing crypto OGs against the government and each other. His latest high-profile project is to keep Ethereum developer Virgil Griffith out of jail.
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.
