“North Korea illegally claims 2.3 trillion KRW by cyber attacking cryptocurrency exchange platforms.”

There is a suspicion that North Korea is illegally dispossessing money and valuables by cyber attacking foreign financial organizations and cryptocurrency exchange platforms.

The Asahi Shinbun citing UN Security Council panel of experts reported on Aug. 5 that North Korea had been suspected of illegally dispossessing up to two billion USD (approximate 2.4 trillion KRW) by cyber attacking financial organizations and cryptocurrency exchange platforms of at least seventeen countries for thirty-five times since Dec. 2015.

Asahi also reported the countries include India, Chile, and Nigeria and it seems that the cyber squad under North Korean People’s Army (NKPA) is attacking them to procure funds for the weapon of mass destruction (WMD).

The news analyzed based on the contents of the UN report that their attack on the cryptocurrency exchange platform s prominent recently.

There have been fifteen cryptocurrency exchange platforms attacks since 2017 that are presumed to be North Korea’s actions, and ten cases among them were known to be targeting the exchange platforms of Korea.

A panel of experts at the UN Security Council analyzed that cryptocurrency exchange markets are primary targets because they are relatively difficult to keep track of cyberattacks compared to banks. Governments’ loose supervisions and regulations are also another reason.

Asahi has also reported that the case where 1.86 billion JPY was withdrawn from 17 different Japanese ATMs in 2016 also seems to be related to North Korea according to the UN report.

The report added the possibility of North Korean officials making a fake credit card based on the information leaked from a bank in the Republic of South Africa.

  4. Desde unos meses después de estas reparaciones, al usar el lavavajillas en un programa intensivo en lugar del habitual corto Eco, detectamos que saltaba el diferencial de la casa, con lo que optamos por usar solo los habituales. Estas últimas averías de Placa y Lavavajillas sucedieron en Noviembre Diciembre de 2012 (hace unos 8 9 meses) y ya entonces, al igual que cuando el detalle comercial”, inicié un borrador de escrito como el presente, solo que lo dejé en ambas ocasiones esperando que cambiara nuestra experiencia con AEG.

  5. Acabo de tener una mala experiencia con el SAT de Arvartos donde me han devuelto el telefono con 2 meses diciendome que tiene restos de oxido y que no se puede reparar. Puedes ir a la tienda donde la adquiriste y solicitar un duplicado de tu factura, presentando tu IMEI y tus datos personales, puede que te den un duplicado y luego lo presentas en el SAT. El centro de reparación nos ha confirmado que lamentablemente el pago por Paypal no esta habilitado. Recomiendo estos teléfonos a quien quiera algo mejor que lo básico pero sin pasarse con el presupuesto.
