The spy agency of South Korea said on Tuesday, 16, that hackers from North Korea tried to break into the computer system of the pharmaceutical Pfizer in search of information about the vaccine against Covid-19 developed by the North American company. “The Seoul National Intelligence Service has warned us that North Korea has attempted to obtain technology involving the Covid vaccine and treatment of the disease using a ‘cyberwar’ to hack Pfizer,” said a member of South Korea’s parliament. , Ha Tae-keung, in an interview with local news agencies.
According to the American channel CBS, the country is known for having an “army” with thousands of hackers trained to attack companies and research institutes in the neighboring country and elsewhere in the world. Despite the alleged invasion attempt, the socialist country led by Kim Jong-un, which closed its borders in January 2020 with the increase in cases in China, claims not to have recorded cases of Covid-19, which is put in doubt by some experts.
