Cyberattacks furnish third of funds for North Korean missiles: US official
2022 on pace to be most lucrative year on record for DPRK hackers, as experts say Pyongyang outpacing US countermeasures
North Korean cyber crime provides up to a third of the funds that support its missile programs, a U.S. cybersecurity official said Thursday, one of the most explicit assessments to date about how much the country’s hacking syndicates contribute to Pyongyang’s revenue streams.
Anne Neuberger, deputy national security advisor for cybersecurity, made the remarks during an event with the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), after meeting with South Korean counterparts in Seoul earlier this week to discuss ways to counteract cyberattacks from North Korea and others.
