The campaign, dubbed "FASTCash 2.0: North Korea's BeagleBoyz Robbing Banks," is an international operation designed to initiate fraudulent international money orders and ATM cash-outs. In the operation, North Korean operatives seek to gain unauthorized access to networks, point-of-sale systems, and ATMs belonging to their victims.

According to the advisory, the BeagleBoyz have attempted to steal at least $2 billion since 2015 and have frequently left banking systems damaged or inoperative in their wake.
