By Thom Holwerda on 2018-05-02 20:02:03

In an exclusive piece of research, Check Point Researchers have carried out a revealing investigation into North Korea's home-grown anti-virus software, SiliVaccine. One of several interesting factors is that a key component of SiliVaccine's code is a 10-year-old copy of one of Trend Micro's, a Japanese company, software components.

It also contained a piece of malware, so not much different from western anti-virus.
