North Korea allegedly tried to hack into Pfizer’s systems and steal COVID-19 technology and treatment.

Yonhap news agency reported on Tuesday, citing the South Korean intelligence service.

The National Intelligence Service revealed this information at a closed-door session of the National Assembly’s intelligence committee, the news agency said.

The Gavi vaccine alliance said earlier this month that North Korea had asked for COVID-19 vaccines and was expected to get almost two million doses.
