Google: North Korean Hackers Target Security Researchers Again
The hackers also created a website for a fake company named SecuriElite (located in Turkey) and supposedly offering offensive security services as the Google security team focused on hunting down state-backed hackers discovered on March 17.
“In order to build credibility and connect with security researchers, the actors established a research blog and multiple Twitter profiles to interact with potential targets,” Google said. “They’ve used these Twitter profiles for posting links to their blog, posting videos of their claimed exploits, and for amplifying and retweeting posts from other accounts that they control.”
All LinkedIn and Twitter accounts created by the North Korean hackers and associated with this new campaign were reported by Google and are now disabled.
