North Korea Investigated for Heist from Bitcoin Exchange

Investigators in South Korea are looking into North Korea’s possible involvement in a heist from a bitcoin exchange that collapsed, according to people familiar with the situation, as the sanctions-choked regime develops new ways to raise money. The investigation into the hack, led by South Korean law enforcement and a state cybersecurity agency, is still in its infancy and a review of the malware code could take weeks, the people said.
