The North Korean APT37 hacking group uses a new 'FadeStealer' information-stealing malware containing a 'wiretapping' feature, allowing the threat actor to snoop and record from victims' microphones.

APT37, also known as StarCruft, Reaper, or RedEyes, is believed to be a state-sponsored hacking group with a long history of conducting cyber espionage attacks aligned with North Korean interests. These attacks target North Korean defectors, educational institutions, and EU-based organizations.

In the past, the hackers were known to utilize custom malware called 'Dolphin' and 'M2RAT' to execute commands and steal data, credentials, and screenshots from Windows devices and even connected mobile phones.
