    A new report of the investigation into the $530 million hack that ruined Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck in January 2018 states that Russian, not North Korean, actors may have been behind the attack.

    The Asahi Shimbun, a Japanese newspaper, reported that viruses that were thought to have been used in the hack were found on employees’ computers. According to the Asahi Shimbun, the viruses were linked to Russian hacker groups and named “Mokes” and “Netwire.” These viruses were most likely transferred via email, and allowed the hackers to gain access to private keys.
