South Korea's plan to convince President Trump to visit North Korea

Patty Aguilar | 21 February, 2018, 21:25

US cyber security firm FireEye said the state-connected Reaper hacking organisation, which it dubbed APT37, had previously operated in the shadows of Lazarus Group, a better-known North Korean spying and cybercrime group widely blamed for the 2014 Sony Pictures and 2017 global WannaCry attacks.

U.S. President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka will meet women who escaped North Korea when she visits South Korea, sources said Monday.

"We have seen both North Korean and Chinese operations range from simplistic to very technically sophisticated", FireEye's director of intelligence analysis John Hultquist told AFP. This is quite opposite to actions taken by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach and German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, considering they all welcomed inter-Korea talks at the PyeongChang Olympics. "Primary targets include government, military, defense, finance, energy and electric utility sectors". -South Korea military exercises are essential for strengthening the alliance, deterring North Korea's aggression and ensuring the U.N. Command capability's to maintain the armistice as well as improve force readiness.

The paper said the US has, in the past, made similar attempts to pour cold water on chances to improve inter-Korean ties, branding Washington a "villain that stirs tensions on the peninsula and hinders Korean unification".

A spokeswoman for LG said she is not aware of any cyberattacks by North Korea against the company.

Italy's Sofia Goggia Wins the Downhill; Lindsey Vonn Takes Bronze
The big names get their pick in the start order, and they want to go before everyone else gets out there and messes up the course. After she placed third during the Women's Downhill skiing event at the Pyeongchang games on February 20, she broke down in tears.

Cyber attacks linked by experts to North Korea have targeted aerospace, telecommunications and financial companies in recent years, disrupting networks and businesses around the world.

As the APT group has also developed its own malware and appears to have vast resources at hand, it is most likely that Reaper is state-sponsored. Historically, the majority of their targeting has been focused on the South Korean government, military, and defense industrial base; however, they have expanded to other global targets in the a year ago. But he warned that they are capable of inflicting serious damage.

FireEye said that it has "high confidence" that a cyberespionage group it has identified as APT37 is responsible for a number of "zero-day vulnerability" attacks not just in South Korea but also in Japan, Vietnam and in the Middle East. Zero-day attacks are when hackers find and exploit flaws in software before the developers have had an opportunity to create a patch to fix it. These targets, together with the times of day that attacks happen, strongly point to North Korea, FireEye said. There were suggestions that Lazarus, the collective that launched the attack on Sony has links to the North Korean regime. But FireEye says it is highly confident that Reaper is acting on behalf of the North Korean government.

Other targets include the director of a Vietnamese worldwide trading and transport company, and people in Japan working with organizations related to the Olympics.
