Wallet addresses linked to the recent exploit of Euler Finance and last year's breach of Axie Infinity's Ronin Network have shown interactions, fueling suspicions that North Korean cybercriminals could potentially be involved in the latest assault on Euler.Blockchain data shows that an address controlled by Euler Finance’s hacker has sent 100 Ether ($170,515) to a wallet associated with Ronin Bridge exploiter, which is believed to be the infamous North Korean hacker group Lazarus Group.As of now, it remains unclear if Lazarus Group is also behind the recent attack on Euler Finance, or whether there is some sort of affiliation between the hackers and the entity that exploited Euler Finance.Earlier this week, Euler Finance fell victim to a flash loan attack resulting in around $200 million worth of digital assets being stolen from the project.

The losses occurred over six transactions in dai (DAI), wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), staked Ether (sETH) and USDC, and were carried out by two attackers, crypto analytic firm Meta Seluth said at the time.

The company claimed that the attack is related to the deflation attack one month ago. The attacker used a multichain bridge to transfer the funds from the BNB Smart Chain (BSC) to Ethereum and launched the attack.More recently, Euler Finance announced that they have launched a $1 million reward in "the hope that this provides additional incentive for information that leads to the Euler protocol attacker’s arrest and the return of all funds extracted by the attacker."The hack of Axie Infinity's Ronin blockchain saw hackers make off with about $625 million worth of Ethereum and USDC after they managed to gain access to five of the nine private keys held by transaction validators for Ronin
