North Korea is at it again, handing out Ransomware it seems

North Korea has been responsible for quite a lot in the last many years. A wannacry search on the blog which was later attributed to North Korea turn up the following blog posts.

Frankly, putting attributions on these types of things are hard. Really hard. North Korea built Wannacry to try and get some money, and that, according to a recent article, was because they have sanctions in place for whatever political issue targeted this.

While I don’t necessarily want to make this a political blog, sometimes, politics and technology will cross, so if commenting, please be respectful and we’ll be OK.

In an article entitled North Korean hackers are stepping up their ransomware game, Kaspersky finds written by Cyberscoop, it talks about the antivirus company finding a strain in their telemetry that hasn’t really been there but has been used before.

We know from experience that the Lazarus Group
has been responsible for some pretty interesting things through the years. According to the article that is the mainstay of this post, this group has assisted North Korea in giving them a leg up in to their arsenal. We know by articles on ransomware, it has jumpped pretty high in recent times, and now more than ever even during these trying times. I’m sure that as I catch up, we’ll find some stuff that might be of interest in regards to this.

I’m sure this is going to get interesting as we learn more about what governments are up to to try and get a leg up on whatever they want to use the stuff for.

Would you like to read more about what North Korea has been up to? Please feel free to check out this article entitled North Korean hackers are stepping up their ransomware game, Kaspersky finds and I hope that we can all learn something from this.
