The U.S. warned cryptocurrency companies of upcoming attacks by North Korean hackers

Hacker groups sponsored by the North Korean authorities are threatening cryptocurrency companies. There was a warning posted on the Agency for Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection (CISA) website.

A joint communication with the FBI and the Treasury Department mentions Lazarus, APT3, BlueNoroff, and Stardust Chollima groups as persistent and significant threats. They can use a variety of techniques when attacking cryptocurrencies. These include phishing and social engineering.

Crypto exchanges, DeFi protocols, GameFi projects, venture capitalists, and private investors could be targeted.

Earlier, the FBI said that Lazarus Group and another hacker organization APT3 were involved in the Ethereum cryptocurrency theft. In March 2022, the Ronin blockchain bridge was hacked, resulting in the withdrawal of over $625 million worth of cryptocurrency. To date, the Ronin hack has been the largest in the DeFi industry. 

Ministry of Finance blacklisted an Ethereum wallet belonging to Lazarus Group.
