US Seized $500K in Ransomware Payments and Crypto from North Korean Hackers

The US Justice Department has seized roughly $500,000 in digital payments and cryptocurrency from ransomware attacks launched by North Korean hackers.
The North Korean hackers attacked health care organizations in Kansas and Colorado last year by encrypting their computer systems.
The US authority seized ransom payments and cryptocurrency from “China-based money-launderers working for the North Koreans,” reported CNN.
The news came on the prior warning issued by US authorities, stating that North Korea aimed to use ransomware to disrupt health services for prolonged periods.
North Korea-backed hackers are notoriously known for compromising vulnerable crypto protocols and stealing hundreds of millions of digital assets.
