US pub­licly blames North Korea for dev­as­tat­ing Wan­naCry ran­somware at­tack

BASED ON EV­I­DENCE FROM UK, MI­CROSOFT AND MORE.

APC Australia - - Technotes -

In May 2017, Ran­somWare known as Wan­naCry spread across com­put­ers in over 150 coun­tries, lock­ing down hospi­tals and other ma­jor busi­nesses. The US (by way of Pres­i­dent Trump’s Home­land Se­cu­rity Ad­vi­sor Thomas Bossert) has now pub­licly de­clared North Korea as be­ing re­spon­si­ble for the at­tacks in an op-ed in the Wall Street Jour­nal. The claim “is based on ev­i­dence” and the find­ings are ap­par­ently sup­ported by the UK, Mi­crosoft, third-party cy­ber­se­cu­rity ex­perts and in­for­ma­tion from the vic­tims them­selves. HD
