North Korean-backed hackers are targeting security researchers

Google’s Threat Analysis Group (TAG) has revealed that North Korean hackers are actively targeting security researchers via social media, moving to encrypted platforms once a relationship has been established. The hackers send a malicious file to the targets which collects system information. The hackers also appeared to develop a debugging tool, the GetSymbol Project, which is suspected of executing arbitrary code from an attacker-controlled domain. Google has informed the targeted researchers and is sharing findings with the wider community.
