Is North Korea Behind Bank Heists?

Security investigators linked thefts from banks in Asia, including the $81 million stolen from the central bank of Bangladesh in February, to a hacking group in North Korea.

The research firm Symantec has been looking into the Bangladesh bank heist, and on Thursday it posted on its blog that a similar code used to steal Bangladesh’s millions was also used to hack a bank in the Philippines, as well as a failed attempt on a bank in Vietnam last year. The code, Symantec said, has also been linked to the 2014 hack of Sony Pictures’s emails.

      O/T – Did you see this strange story? There have been other defectors but it just seemed strange to me watching the two sons who look so American spouting the state propaganda.

      • I saw that, yes.


        Those guys were raised on the Kool-Aid.

        There was an American GI who defected back to the West with his family. I believe he still lives in Japan with his wife.
