Take great care. Some LinkedIn job offers that you see may not be what they claim to be. They could be crypto attacks.

A team of hackers known as Lazarus who are supported by North Korea have attacked crypto and blockchain talent via LinkedIn.

F-secure (A Finnish cyber security firm) has approved that Lazarus has attacked using a crypto-related job advert to lure people to open it. They found that blockchain users would receive a phishing message through an MS word document that apparently is a job advert, if the user clicked on it, it would execute a malicious macro code when opened.

This malware was created to gain users’ login credentials and steal their cryptocurrency. This is not the first time this group attempts to steal crypto. They deployed several viruses to steal crypto from Mac and Windows users. They stole roughly 65% of the total stolen crypto between 2017 and 2018 which is around $600 million.
