The US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Treasury Department have all warned of new, ongoing attacks targeting blockchain companies, carried out by the Lazarus Group.
The activity cluster has been dubbed TraderTraitor, involving the North Korean state-sponsored advanced persistent threat (APT) actor striking entities operating in the Web 3.0 industry since at least 2020.
Lazarus Group typically targets cryptocurrency exchanges, decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols, play-to-earn cryptocurrency video games, cryptocurrency trading companies, venture capital funds investing in cryptocurrency, and even individual holders of large amounts of cryptocurrency or valuable NFTs.
