Re: play protect
It would be an interesting plot twist if these things were added to distract from the true origins. Then you must wonder who else would be interested in doing such a thing. What super villian has set such a thing in motion?

Re: play protect
< we observed that some of the Korean words found on the malware's control server are not in South Korean vocabulary and that an exposed IP address points to North Korea>

So either those clues point them in the right direction, or the perpetrators are extremely clever and plant these things in order to throw them off the trail -- probably the former, as most don't bother so much in covering their tracks.

play protect
This is a really interesting approach. It's easy to suspect the North in such an attack. It sounds like they're hot on the trail. I guess Google Play Protect didn't detect the malware?
