CHM Malware Disguised as North Korea-related Questionnaire (Kimsuky)

A malicious software has been discovered, named Kimsuky, that is disguised as a North Korea-related questionnaire. This malware was designed to steal sensitive information from the computers of unsuspecting victims.

The malware is spread by email, which contains a link to a website that is designed to look like an official North Korea-related questionnaire. The link leads to a file with an executable extension, which is then used to install the malicious software on the target's computer. Once installed, the malware is capable of collecting data such as usernames and passwords, as well as other sensitive information.

The malware is believed to have been created by a group known as the “DarkHotel” hacking group. This group is known to target government and corporate officials, as well as journalists and academics who are researching North Korea.

This is yet another example of how cybercriminals are taking advantage of the increased public interest in North Korea to spread malware. It is important that users remain vigilant when opening unfamiliar emails and links, and to only download files from trusted sources. Additionally, it is important to make sure that your computer is always up to date with the latest security patches and anti-virus software.

By taking a few simple steps, you can protect yourself and your computer from malicious software like Kimsuky. Stay safe out there!
