25.4.2022 | US speculates North Korea Hacker group is behind the massive crypto heist worth $615 million
The US has linked North Korea-backed hackers to a massive cryptocurrency heist worth $615m (£469m) from players of the popular online game Axie Infinity last month.
Players can earn crypto through gameplay or trading their avatars. The hack is likely one of the biggest ever to hit the crypto world.
US officials say they linked the breach to a group called "Lazarus", believed to be controlled by North Korea's primary intelligence bureau.
