Report: North Korea’s Lazarus Hackers Have Stolen $571M In Crypto-5.26

You may not have heard of them, but reports claim that the North Korea-based Lazarus hacker consortium is responsible for some of the crypto industry’s most-damaging hacks in the past 12 months. As reported by Etehreum World News in late-August, at one point, the group reportedly utilized a piece of malware, dubbed “Applejeus,” that wreaked havoc on an unnamed exchange platform.

Although the exact extent of Lazarus’ quickly growing sphere of influence is still unknown, The Next Web’s Hard Fork recently revealed that the group is directly tied to the attacks on the following five cryptocurrency platforms — CoinCheck, YouBit, Coinis, Bithumb, and Yapizon.
