Confidential reports say that Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, has set its scope on banks and crypto-currency exchanges to collect funds, enhancing in effect their WDM (weapons of mass destruction) and missile programs even though it didn’t conduct any nuclear tests or missile launches. This pushed the UN to investigate and find at least 35 cyber-attacks.
According to sources, North Korea
“used cyberspace to launch increasingly sophisticated attacks to steal funds from financial institutions and cryptocurrency exchanges to generate income.”
They also used cyberspace to launder the money they stole. Additionally, North Korea’s attacks on the cryptocurrency exchanges generated income without being detected.
Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un have met 3 times and they both agreed to talk about Pyongyang giving up its nuclear weapons program. But talks are being stalled and in July 2019 there have been 3 short-range missile tests in just 8 days.
Since the completion of the UN report, the missile launches have enhanced their overall missile capabilities and this proves that North Korea is violating UN sanctions.
