The Lazarus Heist
We don’t know much about what happens in North Korea, and that’s the way they like it.

North Korea denies any involvement. Of course it does; security services worldwide agree the attacks originate in Pyongyang. White has been investigating the underworld of digital crime for years, while Lee has extensive experience of reporting from inside North Korea.
But these hackers still continue to embarrass some of the biggest companies in the world.
