North Korean hackers tied to big crypto heist

There wasn’t much new in the most recent announcement of U.S. sanctions against the North Korean hackers known as Lazarus Group — except for one very important detail. The Treasury Department's announcement cited a single digital currency address, and cryptocurrency-tracking company Chainalysis quickly linked it to the the March hack of Ronin Bridge, which connects the Axie Infinity video game with the Ethereum blockchain. About $600 million in crypto ended up at the address. Treasury says Lazarus Group is helping to illicitly fund Pyongyang's weapons programs. Joe Warminsky has the details.

Crooks share easy-to-use information stealer on Telegram

Cisco Talos researchers have identified a new information stealer they are calling “ZingoStealer.” They say a collective of cybercriminals known as Haskers Gang is responsible for the malware, which is proliferating quickly. Many of the victims are gamers, who are targeted with what they think are game cheats and pirated software. Instead, the files contain malware. Talos analysts say the malware is spreading quickly thanks to its easy-to-use template. ZingoStealer uses Telegram chat features to exfiltrate data and mine cryptocurrency on victims’ systems. Suzanne Smalley reports.
