* UN experts say they are investigating at least 30 instances in 17 countries of North Koreans using cyber attacks to raise money for weapons of mass destruction programmes – and they are also calling for sanctions against ships providing petrol and diesel to the isolated country.
* Last week, The Associated Press (AP) quoted a summary of a report from the experts which said North Korea illegally acquired as much as US$2 billion (S$2.77 billion) from its increasingly sophisticated cyber activities against financial institutions and cryptocurrency exchanges.
