The North Korean government may have planted malicious software in U.S. cyberspace following the June 12 meeting between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The Department of Homeland Security and FBI concluded Thursday it found dangerous North Korea-linked malware that had the potential to do damage to U.S. entities, but shared little information about who it would have affected and the extent of the attempted attack.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have identified a Trojan malware variant—referred to as KEYMARBLE—used by the North Korean government. The U.S. Government refers to malicious cyber activity by the North Korean government as HIDDEN COBRA,” the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team said in a statement.
