MacOS Malware Found On Crypto Website Traced to North Korean Hackers

The site reportedly does not have any download links but the malware, UnionCryptoTrader, was found on it. Found by malware researcher Dinesh Devadoss, it was discovered that the malware can run remote operations in memory, not expected to be easily done with the macOS like with Windows. This makes it nearly impossible to detect and makes it difficult to carry out any forensic analysis.

This year alone, North Korea has been fingered a few times as backing some attempts at hacking in different parts of the world. Back in August, the U.N. released a report accusing North Korea of enriching itself by $2 billion, via cyber attacks. The country has since dismissed the report.
