Cybersecurity researchers have discovered a new Windows malware strain that can steal sensitive data from any connected device, including mobile phones, and is apparently being used by groups associated with the North Korean government.

ESET experts said they had stumbled upon a previously unknown infostealer called Dolphin. Apparently, Dolphin is being used by a threat actor known as APT 37, or Erebus, a group with known ties to the North Korean government. The group, the researchers say, has been active for about a decade.
