North Korean Hackers Continue Attacks On South Korean Companies

Research shows that four North Korean hacker groups – Lazarus, TEMP.Hermit, APT37, and APT38 – continue to attack South Korean companies, financial institutions, and public corporations despite rapprochement between North and South Korea. Each hacker group performs a different mission using a different hacking programme, and some of the attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Lazarus focuses on infecting major road and power generation agencies with malware, and TEMP.Hermit targets defence companies and energy agencies. APT37 attacks the South Korean government and military, while APT38 steals money from South Korean banks.
