US releases warning on North Korean hacking group just days before the election

CISA advises businesses and frequent targets in ROK, Japan and U.S. on common Kimsuky group tactics

The U.S. has issued a warning against a prominent North Korean hacking group just days before the U.S. presidential election, according to a public advisory published on the evening of Oct. 27.

The advisory, jointly released by several high-profile U.S. government agencies, highlights common tactics used by Kimsuky, a North Korean group that has been accused of the 2014 Sony Pictures hack. The hack was in response to "The Interview," a fictional Hollywood film satirizing North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
