North Korean cyber attackers have stolen as much as $670 million in fiat and crypto

According to a panel of experts reporting to the U.N. Security Council, North Korea has been engaging in cyber attacks to subvert economic sanctions and obtain funds, Nikkei Asian Review writes. Pyongyang has managed to steal as much as $670 million in foreign currency and cryptocurrencies.

Economic sanctions have been imposed on North Korea because of its nuclear and missile programs. The programs still "remain intact,” even though the country’s main export—coal—was blocked.
