North Korea has rapidly expanded its cyber capabilities over the last decade, from marginal operations focused on distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks to large-scale cyberwarfare capable of compromising hardened networks and stealing hundreds of millions in cash and cryptocurrency. Perhaps the most widely known of the DPRK’s cybercrime organizations is the so-called Lazarus Group, which has become all the more infamous through the success of the BBC’s hit podcast “The Lazarus Heist.” This week, “The Lazarus Heist” co-creator and presenter Geoff White joins the NK News podcast to discuss this enigmatic group of hackers and the increasing sophistication of Pyongyang’s cyber efforts. He talks about DPRK attacks ranging from the 2016 Bangladesh Bank heist to a recent theft from a crypto-based video game, how North Korean hackers are increasingly utilizing the dark web and more. Geoff White (@geoffwhite247) is an investigative journalist and technology specialist who has worked for the BBC, Channel 4 News, The Sunday Times and other outlets. His new book, “The Lazarus Heist – From Hollywood to High Finance: Inside North Korea’s Global Cyber War,” digs deeper into the workings of the DPRK’s “shadowy cabal of hackers” and will be published on June 9, 2022. About the podcast: The North Korea News Podcast is a weekly podcast hosted by Jacco Zwetsloot (@JaccoZed) exclusively for NK News, covering all things DPRK — from news to extended interviews with leading experts and analysts in the field, along with insight from our very own journalists.
