North Korea allows cyber gangs to steal British COVID vaccine secrets, sources said.

North Korea allows state-backed cyber gangs to pretend to be team leaders in an attempt to steal Britain's COVID-19 vaccine secret, security sources said on Friday.Cybercriminals are targeting AstraZeneca, a pharmaceutical company that works with Oxford University to develop the UK's COVID vaccine. Preliminary results suggest that the Oxford vaccine is anywhere between 60 percent and 90 percent effective, and regulators are now asked to evaluate.Hackers approached staff working at AstraZeneca, based at Cambridge headquarters, with a fake job offer. As a recruiter, working on behalf of a competitor, they have sent messages over the past few weeks through the social networking site LinkedIn and through the messaging service WhatsApp.AstraZeneca employees were then sent a document claiming to be a job description, which included malicious computer code designed to give hackers access to the company's computer systems.

The tools and techniques used by cyber gangs are often used by SLOTXO AUTO North Korea, and security sources confirm the country is believed to be behind the hack. The source said the effort was believed to have been unsuccessful.AstraZeneca's targeting comes just weeks after Downing Street made an unusual step in going public, accusing Russia of being behind a cyberattack that "Nasty" were separated in two UK vaccine teams, one at Oxford and the other run by Imperial College London.The National Cyber ​​Security Center (NCSC), an intelligence agency tasked with protecting Britain from cyber warfare, said at the time. It was "the highest level of confidence" that the Kremlin was behind the "ongoing" attack.On Friday, the NCSC declined to provide further details on the North Korean hack. But it doesn't deny that the rogue state has tried to steal vaccine secrets.A NCSC spokesperson said: "Working with our partners, the NCSC is committed to protecting our most important assets, the health sector, and critical vaccine research and development against threats.

The recognized Reuters news agency said North Korean gangs had targeted the Many "crowds" include staff working on COVID-19 research but do not think they will be successful.North Korea's mission to the United Nations in Geneva declined to respond to a request for comment. Pyongyang has previously denied cyberattacks. No direct line to contact foreign media AstraZeneca, which became one of the top three developers of the Covid-19 vaccine, declined to comment.Sources told Reuters the attack was part of a hack campaign referenced by US officials and cybersecurity researchers to North Korea.Previously, the campaign focused on defense companies and media organizations. But it has focused on goals related to Covid-19 in recent weeks.Cyber ​​attacks on health authorities, vaccine scientists and drugmakers have soared during the COVID-19 outbreak as state-sponsored hacking and criminal groups hijack research. Latest and information about the outbreak

Western officials say any information stolen can be sold for profit, extort victims or give foreign governments a valuable strategic advantage as they fight to control a deadly disease. 1.4 million people worldwide Microsoft said this month that two North Korean hacking groups target vaccine developers in different countries, including: "Send a message with a description of the crafted job." South Korean lawmakers said on Friday that the country's intelligence agency had broken those efforts.Hackers from Iran, China and Russia previously reportedly tried to tap into the top drugmakers and even the World Health Organization this year. Tehran, Beijing and Moscow all denied the allegations.Some of the accounts used in the AstraZeneca attack were registered with Russian email addresses, one of the sources said, in a possible attempt to mislead investigators.North Korea has been blamed by US prosecutors for the world's worst and worst cyberattacks. Pyongyang described the allegations as part of Washington's attempt to smear its image.

The impersonation of a broker on the social networking site LinkedIn was a tactic that North Korean hackers wanted to steal valuable money and research. Hackers linked to North Korea's regime often impersonate brokers and message targets, asking them to download files claiming to contain job descriptions.When a file is downloaded and opened, it contains computer code that allows hackers to gain access to a protected computer system, allowing them to quietly search through the server and then smuggle the file away.Cyber ​​security experts have found that LinkedIn messages like these are often sent by Lazarus hacking group, which in 2014 managed to break into Sony Pictures' servers and in 2017 brought some of the NHS to a standstill during the ranch's attacks. Somewhere WannaCry Last year, the group took the position of broker for defense contractors and sent a message to employees of a British defense and aerospace company in the hope that they will have access to military documents.
