Exclamation North Korea using cyberattacks to fund nuclear pursuits and ballistic missiles, UN re

North Korea using cyberattacks to fund nuclear pursuits and ballistic missiles, UN report says
By: Sophie Mann - Just The News - 02-09-21

Anew report from a panel of experts at the United Nations says that North Korea is financing its continued development of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles in part by launching a stream of cyberattacks.

The report, which was distributed among members of the UN Security Council on Monday, posits that Pyongyang has stolen more than $315 million since 2019 and is using that cash to back the development of its nuclear arsenal and other weapons systems. Furthermore, the report indicates that the country has been able to launder stolen cryptocurrency and convert it into government-backed forms of money.

The report recommends sanctions against four prominent North Koreans though, the UN Security Council has imposed many a sanction on the North Koreans over the past decade-and-a-half that have failed to discourage the country from its nuclear pursuits.

The council has now been briefed on the ways in which Pyongyang is using "malicious cyber activities" to access financial channels from which it has been blocked.


Personal note: Ya know there's got to be a way to fry all NK electronics - these guys don't invent anything rather the steal it from others! They are pirates from day one and need to be taught a lesson - like frying all their hardware. I mean toast them real good so it hurts.
These back door entries are terrible - you would think it would flash back a disabling program to fry that system! We have to get a hell of lot better protecting our products - military - and the people - from being compromised at every turn!

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
