North Korea sold illegal gambling websites to South Korean cybercrime ring

A North Korean organization under the Workers’ Party has reportedly created thousands of illegal online gambling websites in cooperation with an unidentified South Korean cybercrime ring, the ROK’s National Intelligence Service (NIS) disclosed on Wednesday. The investigation appears to be ongoing. “This is the first time that concrete evidence has been disclosed to the public that North Korea is deeply involved in cyber gambling, which has recently become a serious social problem in South Korea,” the NIS stated. The agency now estimates that “thousands” more North Korean organizations are currently developing cyber gambling schemes and selling them abroad to generate foreign currency for the regime. It is assumed that most of them have settled in China illegally.
