Multiple retailers hit by new North Korea cyberattack

The websites of multiple retailers in the US and Europe have been compromised by the Magecart credit card skimmer following a series of cyberattacks which are believed to have been launched by the North Korean state-sponsored advanced persistent threat (APT) group Lazarus.

Up until now, North Korean hacking activity was limited to banks and South Korean cryptocurrency markets and the country’s covert cyber operations have earned hackers $2bn, according to a report released last year by the UN.
