North Korean state-backed hackers

North Korean state-backed hackers are distributing a malicious version of a legitimate application developed by CyberLink, a Taiwanese software maker, to target downstream customers.

Microsoft’s Threat Intelligence team said on Wednesday North Korean hackers had compromised CyberLink to distribute a modified installer file from the company as part of a wide-reaching supply-chain attack.

CyberLink is a software company headquartered in Taiwan that develops multimedia software, such as PowerDVD, and AI facial recognition technology.
