Social media Twitter has suspended two accounts of North Korean hackers who have been conducting hacking activities targeting cybersecurity researchers.

According to the information technology media, Record, Twitter has suspended two accounts run by hackers belonging to the North Korean government on the 15th.

It is known that these accounts were used for North Korean cyber espionage by enticing cybersecurity researchers to malicious websites and then infecting systems with malicious software.

This cyber espionage activity, which started last year, was discovered by Google’s threat analysis group in January of this year.

At the time, Google explained that North Korean hackers had been active on social networks such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Telegram, Discord and Keybase for months, creating fake security researcher identities.
