North Korean hackers targeting critical infrastructure in US and South Korea

Hackers backed by the government of North Korea have recurrently targeted critical infrastructure facilities in the United States and South Korea to finance their illegal activities through ransomware payments. To address this threat, the United States National Security Agency (NSA), the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Republic of Korea (ROK) National Intelligence Service (NIS), and the ROK Defense Security Agency (DSA) have issued a Joint Cybersecurity Advisor to help organisations face these threats as part of the #StopRansomware campaign.
