Suspected North Korean hackers known as the Lazarus Group are believed to be behind the recent $100 million heist on California blockchain Harmony, a firm that tracks stolen cryptocurrency said Wednesday.  

Harmony confirmed that its Horizon Bridge, a seamless layer which allows cryptocurrency to move across different blockchains, had been hacked last week.
