North Korean hackers launched cyberattack against Russia Foreign Ministry.

Hacker group APT37 attacked the Foreign Ministry and its employees in late 2021 subsequently compromising the account of a government employee, security experts warned.

Cyber security researchers claim some employees were sent phishing emails asking to provide vaccination details, while others were fed with links to malware disguised as software the Russian government uses to collect Covid vaccination statuses.

From the compromised address, hackers managed to send a phishing email to Russian Deputy Minister Sergey Ryabkov on December 20 and also targeted the Russian Embassy in Indonesia.
