North Korean hackers have carried out a cyberattack on Pfizer’s computer systems in order to steal data on the coronavirus vaccine. The Pyongyang regime, which has yet assured for months that the country has not been affected by the epidemic, the country has just demanded from the United Nations the delivery of vaccine aid with a volume of two million doses.
A state that behaves like a hacker. According to media reports, citing South Korean intelligence services on Tuesday, North Korea sought to break into the computer systems of pharmaceutical giant Pfizer. The goal: to find information on the vaccine and treatments against the coronavirus . The Pyongyang regime, led by leader Kim Jong-Un, nevertheless maintains that the country has not been affected by the pandemic . This cyberattack thus tends to prove the reality of the health situation in North Korea .
Spies from pyongyang have tried to hack other laboratories, the objective is still to steal the manufacturing secrets of the vaccines against the Covid-19 virus. They have attempted to break into the computer systems of Johnson and Johnson, AstraZeneca, Novavax and virtually every leading pharmaceutical research center. Which says a lot about the reality of the health situation in North Korea, a priori particularly degraded so that its diet is reduced to such extremes.
The irony of this case being that, since the start of the pandemic, Kim Jong-un has been shouting from the rooftops that his country is the only one in the world that has not been affected by the coronavirus. This is obviously a shameless lie since Pyongyang has just demanded from the United Nations the delivery of vaccine aid with a volume of two million doses.
