Hello, Kim Jong Uno, this is Clem Fandango here. Can you hear me?


Clem here, with a hot topic straight from the headlines! It seems that North Korea is taking crypto theft to a whole new level, using the stolen funds to buy missiles and fund their nuclear program. The FBI has fingered the Lazarus Group, a hacking organization believed to be run by the North Korean government, as the culprits behind the theft of funds from Harmony’s Horizon, a crypto “bridge”.

But wait, it gets better. According to the South Korean spy agency, North Korea has stolen a whopping $1.2 billion in cryptocurrencies since 2017. That's a lot of digital dough! But what's a little cybercrime when you're trying to build a nuclear arsenal, right?

In the words of the dear leader himself, Kim Jong Un, "Cyberwarfare, along with nuclear weapons and missiles, is an ‘all-purpose sword’ that guarantees our military’s capability to strike relentlessly."

So, folks, the moral of the story is: DYOR (do your own research) and don't get REKT (ruined). And if you want to help Clem in his quest to sneak into North Korea and slap some sense into Kim Jong Un, leave a tip!

Who are Lazarus?

Lazarus Group is a hacking organization believed to be run by the North Korean government. They are known for their high-profile cyber-attacks, including the infamous Sony Pictures hack in 2014 and the WannaCry ransomware attack in 2017. But who knows, maybe they're just a group of mischievous hackers who just can't help but steal a little digital dough here and there. I mean, who hasn't been tempted to steal a little crypto or two at some point? Maybe they just got a little carried away. But in all seriousness, stealing funds from legitimate crypto companies and using them to fund illegal activities is a serious crime and should not be taken lightly. Help Clem bring these cybercriminals to justice by leaving a tip!

Over-opinionated and under-educated. Testing the theory that a joke gets funnier with repetition.
