US Cyber Command Adds North Korean Malware Samples to VirusTotal
US Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) this week shared 11 malware samples linked to the notorious North Korean state-backed APT known as Lazarus group or Hidden Cobra, by uploading the samples to malware analysis platform VirusTotal. All of the samples target Windows systems and many of them have been regularly detected by the platform.
