The hackers are believed to be linked to a North Korean group known as Kimsuky, which has been accused of carrying out a number of cyberattacks in recent years. The group is known for its use of spear phishing emails, which are designed to trick recipients into clicking on malicious links.

The South Korean government is investigating the cyberattacks and has taken steps to mitigate the damage. However, the attacks highlight the need for the United States and South Korea to strengthen their cyber defenses.
