Kimsuky hackers deploy new Linux backdoor in attacks on South Korea
2024-05-16 13:28

The North Korean hacker group Kimsuki has been using a new Linux malware called Gomir that is a version of the GoBear backdoor delivered via trojanized software installers.

In early February 2024, researchers at the SW2 threat intelligence company reported about a campaign where Kimsuky used trojanized versions of various software solutions, e.g. TrustPKI and NX PRNMAN from SGA Solutions, Wizvera VeraPort, to infect South Korean targets with Troll Stealer and the Go-based Windows malware GoBear.

Analysts at Symantec, a Broadcom company, looking into the same campaign that targeted South Korean government organizations, discovered a new malicious tool that appears to be a Linux variant of the GoBear backdoor.

NSA warns of North Korean hackers exploiting weak DMARC email policies.
