Hackers of North Korea could be involved in attacks on crypto-exchange exchanges

The personal data of about 30 thousand users of the world's largest exchange, Bithumb cryptocurrency, were stolen.

Hackers of the DPRK could have been involved in attacks on the crypto-exchange markets. On December 16, Yonhap reported with reference to sources in the National Intelligence Agency of South Korea.


According to their information, in June 2017, cybercriminals from North Korea stole personal data of about 30 thousand users of the world's largest exchange crypto-currency Bithumb, located in Seoul. The second incident occurred in September 2017, when hackers abducted a cryptocurrency from the Coins exchange.

It is noted that the attackers used the same codes for hacking as the hacker group Lazarus, which in 2014 attacked the film company Sony Pictures Entertainment, and in 2016, kidnapped $ 81 million from the central bank of Bangladesh.

Prior to this, the British financier, founder of the Hermitage Capital William Browder said that crypto-currencies can be used by some countries to bypass international sanctions.
