North Korea hackers to have breach several cryptocurrency exchanges

It was recently reported that North Korea hackers would have stolen around $400 million in cryptocurrency in 2021.

Indeed, this shows that the country’s national strategy of hacking and laundering digital money is still working and targeting companies that are trading cryptocurrency. North Korea would have then hacked and stolen $316 million in virtual assets between 2019 and 2020 to use for its nuclear weapons program.

Software developers have developed various projects and exchanges that enable users to trade one type of cryptocurrency for another, allowing then malicious actors’ operations.
