    North Korea has been running a hacking campaign targeting aerospace, telecommunications and financial industries in the US since 2016, according to alerts issued by the government. Homeland Security and the FBI have released the technical details of what they say are North Korean-sponsored cyber attacks in an effort to help companies protect themselves. The alerts contain IP addresses associated with Volgmer, one of the backdoor Trojans the hackers have been using for years.
