ScarCruft, active since at least 2012, is a cyber espionage group that operates on behalf of the North Korean government.

The group is believed to be a subordinate element within North Korea’s Ministry of State Security.

Attack chains mounted by the group have leaned heavily on social engineering to spearphish victims and deliver payloads onto target networks.

ScarCruft uses a trojan called the RokRAT remote access trojan.
