ASuspected North Korean hackers have tried to break into the systems of British drugmaker AstraZeneca in recent weeks, two people with knowledge of the matter have told Reuters news agency, as the company races to deploy its vaccine for the virus.

The hackers posed as recruiters on networking sites LinkedIn and WhatsApp to approach AstraZeneca staff with fake job offers, Reuters said, citing sources.

They then sent documents purporting to be job descriptions that were laced with malicious code designed to gain access to a victim’s computer.
