In September 2013, Kaspersky reported a new APT group it dubbed ‘Kimsuky’, which it linked to North Korea. The group, whose interests include South Korean industry, journalists and North Korean defectors, continues to be active: recent activity was analysed by Yoroi earlier this month.
Jaeki Kim. Kyoung-Ju Kwak and Min-Chang Jang from Financial Security Institute have been tracking the group and its various spear-phishing activities for years. In a paper presented at VB2019 in London, they detailed the tools and activities used by this group, some of which they were able to analyse through OpSec failures by the group.
Are you tracking an APT group? Have you fought their targeting of your organisation? Why not submit a paper for VB2020 in Dublin, Ireland, the deadline for which is Sunday 15 March.
