Feds expose North Korean hacking campaign

Feb 14, 2020

Federal law enforcement identified a North Korean hacking campaign targeting financial institutions, among other private-sector industries.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and FBI released several malware reports to help network defenders identify and reduce exposure to North Korean cyber activity. Each report includes malware descriptions, suggested response actions, and recommended mitigation techniques.

The Defense Department's Cyber Command said the malware is being used for phishing and remote access by North Korean cyber actors —the first time the department has attributed a campaign to North Korea.

Cybersecurity information and other resources are available on ICBA's Bank Cyber and Data Security Guide.
