Israeli media report that North Korean hackers have attacked the computers of some officials and employees of the regime’s military industry.
According to this news, North Korean hackers have targeted Israeli military officials and employees by sending job advertisements with attractive conditions through the social network LinkedIn, and through this, they have gained information about their computers.
It is not yet clear how many officials and employees of the Zionist military industry have been attacked by hackers and what sensitive information has been stolen.
ClearSky, which specializes in cybersecurity and was the first to identify the attack by North Korean hackers on Israel’s military industry, said the penetration into computer systems was successful and important information was likely stolen, The New York Times reported.

According to the Israeli Defense Ministry, the penetration attempt was suppressed and no security breaches were made, but unofficially there are concerns about the transfer of information to Iran, an ally of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
According to some reports, the introduction was carried out by the so-called “Lazar group” associated with Lab 110, a military intelligence unit of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea..
In 2018, the US opened a criminal case stating that the “Lazarus Group” played a role in the devastating WannaCry virus attack that paralyzed 300,000 computers in 150 countries in 2017, a 2016 cyber attack for $ 81 million from a Bangladeshi bank and the 2014 attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment, which leaked executives’ email data and destroyed more than two-thirds of the studio’s computer servers.
