OFAC targets N Korean cyber hackers and Ugandan top cop
The Treasury Department issued two news releases on Friday concerning OFAC actions. OFAC designated three North Korean state-sponsored malicious cyber groups responsible for North Korea’s malign cyber activity on critical infrastructure to support illicit weapon and missile programs. This activity included tactics such as cyber espionage, data theft, monetary heists, and destructive malware operations targeting government, military, financial, manufacturing, publishing, media, entertainment, and international shipping companies, as well as critical infrastructure.
OFAC also sanctioned the former Inspector General of Police of the Ugandan Police Force, Kale Kayihura, pursuant to Executive Order 13818, for having engaged in serious human rights abuse against Ugandan citizens, as well as for his involvement in corruption.
