Thank North Korea for WannaCry Cyber Attack
Cyber Attack to be Blamed on North Korea
On Tuesday it is expected that Trump Administration is in fact going to go ahead and blame North Korea for the cyber attack WannaCry that crippled the countries around the globe earlier this year.
The Trump administration has asserted that the Lazarus Group, the group that carried out the global attack, actually works for the North Korean Government.
The news has caused global worry as tensions between the US and North Korea have been steadily increasing the past few months.
The North Korean government does also deny that they were behind any such attack let alone do they pay off or employ anyone within the Lazarus Group to carry out any type of cyber attacks.
Of course the popular belief is that the Lazarus Group is also responsible for the 2014 attack on Sony Pictures in what is suspected as retaliation because of the upcoming release of the movie “The Interview” which depicted Kim Jong-un in less than favorable light.
Some have suggested as well that WannaCry was released as nothing more than pure accident as hackers were simply developing code however, the suggestion still points a very clear finger in the direction of North Korea.
The announcement tomorrow will not please North Korea as most of us already know and it could very well lead to more threats or worse yet an actual attack of some sort.
What could be worse than pissing off a nation that has nuclearized weapons and pretty good cyber weapon capabilities?
As luck would have it, hitting the wires today came the announcement that both China and Russia are training together should the US invade North Korea.
Oh and they are not training to fight with the US or her allies by the way.
