USA set to declare North Korea carried out massive WannaCry cyber attack

BREAKING NEWS

As a result, the Trump administration will be calling on "all responsible states" to counter North Korea's ability to conduct cyber attacks, and to implement all "relevant" United Nations Security Council sanctions, according to a USA official familiar with the matter.

Jeanette Manfra, assistant secretary of homeland security for cybersecurity and communication, said that the companies should take additional steps to collaborate with the government to defend against cyber attacks.

Bossert wrote that North Korea's "malicious behavior" has gone on for years and is growing more egregious.

The U.S. blamed North Korea for the WannaCry ransomware attack that affected hundreds of thousands of computers globally this year, offering further justification for the White House's campaign to step up worldwide pressure on the regime.

"We applaud our corporate partners, Microsoft and Facebook especially, for acting on their own initiative last week without any direction by the U.S. government or coordination to disrupt the activities of North Korean hackers".

Bossert-who cut his teeth in the Bush administration and was the victim of an email phishing attack this August-stated that evidence compiled by DHS had been reviewed by allied nations such as the United Kingdom, Canada, and Japan, which had agreed with the United State's assessment of North Korea's culpability.

In light of Bessert's op-ed, a follow-up statement from the White House is expected to be released sometime on Tuesday. It also requires governments and businesses to cooperate to mitigate cyber risk and increase the cost to hackers.

The National Security Agency linked North Korea to the worm's creation in June.

"While I would not characterize them as the best in the world, they are among the best in the world and the best organized", Army General Vincent Brooks, commander of U.S. Forces Korea, said of North Korea's cyberwarfare capabilities a year ago.

The U.K. government in October blamed North Korea for the attack on the NHS. Until now, the USA government has not publicly stated as much. In addition to the U.K., Australia, Canada and Japan are among countries that agree with the USA analysis, Bossert said.

Those who remember May's attack, which locked down the systems of hospitals, banks, and other companies across the United States, might recall Marcus Hutchins-a 22-year-old hacker known as MalwareTech-was credited with stopping the spread of WannaCry. -South Korean military plans and the alleged theft of $60 million from a Taiwan bank.
