    "DOJ announces charges against North Korean hacker spies accused of stealing more than $1.3 billion in cash and cryptocurrency

    According to the indictment filed in December, the defendants work for the Reconnaissance General Bureau, North Korea’s military intelligence agency. The agency houses the hacking units known by various names, including Lazarus Group and APT38...

    One of the defendants, Park Jin Hyok, was also charged in a complaint about the Sony hack unsealed in September 2018...

    The conspiracy ranged widely, prosecutors allege, with the operatives hacking into banks and crypto exchanges, and creating a destructive ransomware virus, WannaCry, in May 2017. They are accused of developing multiple malicious cryptocurrency applications from March 2018 through at least September 2020, which provided the hackers a backdoor into victims’ computers..."

    "Chicago feds charge 22 people for using bitcoin to buy data stolen in Kmart hack

    The indictment says authorities seized property traceable to the offense including a Cartier watch, Prada and Ray-Ban sunglasses, cosmetics from Lancome and Estee Lauder, and purses from Coach, Michael Kors and Gucci.

    A federal grand jury has accused 22 people of spending more than $2 million of bitcoins to access thousands of payment card accounts stolen from Kmart in a hack...

    The scheme alleged in the indictment revolves around the use of payment cards including credit, debit and gift cards. It says someone identified only as “Co-Schemer A” installed malware on Kmart computers between August 2016 and April 2017 allowing that person to capture payment card data from more than 3 million cards from Kmart computers...

    The indictment goes on to accuse 22 individuals of purchasing data from more than 80,000 payment card accounts, including more than 56,000 accounts from Kmart, in exchange for $2.1 million of bitcoins...."
