From North Korea a new malware against USA: it’s dubbed Typeframe

New tool for the North Korea’s Hidden Cobra cyber warfare and espionage campaign against USA: the Typeframe malware

The North Korea cyber offensive against USA is continuing, despite efforts by presidents Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un. It has been denounced by United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT). US-CERT issued a warning about a new form of malware used by Pyongyang state-sponsored hackers to compromise computers, as part of the Hidden Cobra cyber warfare and espionage campaign. Typeframe is the name of the new malicious code and it’s similar as the cyber-infections discovered earlier this year, allegedly used by the Asian country to penetrate and compromise different targets. US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) says it has discovered 11 malware samples. They consisted of 32-bit and 64-bit Windows executable files and a Microsoft Word document containing macros, that are being used to deploy the malware on target computers. The aim of the cyber- attacks campaign is to take control of systems and help compromise high-profile targets.
