North Korea hacks Nigerian banks to fund nuclear programme‎ – Report

Nigeria has been named among 18 countries, whose banks have been attacked by North Korean hackers to get funds for sponsoring its nuclear programme.
Cyber security firm, Kaspersky, made this shocking revelation in its latest report.

According to the report, this could be regarded as the biggest bank compromise in history.
The huge amounts of stolen money North Korea pilfers is likely being spent on advancing its development of nuclear weapons, two international security experts told CNN.
“This is all for their nuclear weapons and missile programmes. They need this money for building and researching more ballistic missiles,” said Anthony Ruggiero, a senior fellow for Foundation for Defence of Democracies who specialises in North Korea.
