Talos Takes Ep. #76: What type of secrets could Kimsuky be after?
August 12, 2022
Jon Munshaw (host) and Asheer Malhotra (speaker)
Jon took a break from listening to “Red (Taylor’s Version)” to turn this podcast around quickly to align with our recent research on the Kimsuky APT. This North Korean state-sponsored actor is in the wild again targeting South Korean organizations that house potentially sensitive information. The group set up fake Blogger sites to lure in the victims to read about news related to nuclear disarmament and relations on the Korean peninsula, but instead were hit with infostealing malware. Assheer Malhotra, who helped research and write our latest blog
, joins the show to discuss this group’s motivations, what information they may have been looking for, and how Talos helped put a stop to their actions.
