U.S. Declares North Korea Carried Out Massive WannaCry Cyberattack

The Washington Post reports that the “Trump administration on Monday evening publicly acknowledged that North Korea was behind the WannaCry computer worm that affected more than 230,000 computers in over 150 countries earlier this year,” and that “as a result, the administration will be calling on ‘all responsible states’ to counter North Korea’s ability to conduct cyberattacks and to implement all ‘relevant’ United Nations Security Council sanctions, according to a U.S. official familiar with the matter.”
