North Korea Launched WannaCry Ransomeware?
Ransomeware – Cyberwarfare
According to newly released intel by the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre it was discovered that recent cyber attacks, namely WannaCry was tied to the North Korean-affiliated hacking team Lazarus Group.
This is the team by the way that launched huge cyber attacks on Sony Pictures as revenge over the movie The Interview.
What’s more is that the President of Microsoft has confirmed to the media that the government of North Korea was responsible for the WannaCry attack.
Oddly, no one seems shocked by this news but they should be because North Korea has also been blamed rather recently for attempting to launch a cyber attack on power grids here in the US.
I believe that I have mentioned this before, North Korea has been pretty quiet, sitting in the corner and building its army pretty relentlessly for quite a few years here and they are about to get a new friend in Iran if Trump continues on his ill advised back out of the Iran Nuclear deal.
We can’t forget Russia either, Putin does get around and he tends to play all of the sides that he can. Russia bed’s with the best possible partner that could be of a benefit to Russia.
So Pyongyang was behind the WannaCry hack, that utilized cyber weapons that were in fact stolen from the National Security Agency here in the US and our government is still going on and on about Russian sponsored fake news, ads, social media accounts.
Forgive me here but isn’t that pretty much child’s play compared to the likes of WannaCry, nuclear war and North Korea showing the world just how powerful they really are?
