VB2018 paper: Lazarus Group: a mahjong game played with different sets of tiles

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Jun 4, 2019

The Lazarus Group, generally linked to the North Korean government, is one of the most notorious threat groups of recent years. It has engaged in digital espionage, destructive attacks and financially motivated attacks, and was probably the most discussed threat group at VB2018 in Montreal.

One of the Lazarus-related papers at VB2018 was written by ESET researchers Peter Kálnai and Michal Poslušný and presented by the former in Montreal. In their paper, the researchers looked at various campaigns linked to Lazarus (including some that had not previously been published) and at what links them.

The authors presented the same research at CONfidence in Kraków yesterday. Today, we have published Peter and Michal's paper - you can read it in both HTML and PDF format. We have also uploaded the recording of Peter's VB2018 presentation to our YouTube channel.
