The Lazarus Heist 🎧 Podcast

If you are into podcasts, BBC World is producing a very good series on the hacking group Lazarus and its ties to North Korea. The first episode goes in details through the Sony hack in 2014 as the movie "The Interview" was about to be released. It then moves onto how North Korea uses hacking to finance itself. Very interesting so far.
