US Warns N. Korean Malware Lurking in Computer Networks

The U.S. government has issued a warning against active North Korean malware lurking in many computer networks.
 
AFP reported about an alert issued Tuesday by the U.S. Homeland Security Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation(FBI) against a hackers’ group Hidden Cobra, also known as Lazarus. They suspect the group is still operating through backdoor access within the networks it previously infiltrated.
 
Earlier this year, Washington officials accused the group of conducting cyber attacks around the world as far back as 2009, revealing its potential ties with the North.
 
The U.S. authorities said some computer networks of government agencies, financial firms, media organizations and automotive companies could have been infected with the backdoor access programs left by the malware the group planted, such as Volgmer “backdoor Trojan” or a remote control tool called Fallchill.
 
The FBI presumes that Volgmer and FallChil have been used since 2013 and last year, respectively.
