Cyber-Attack: US Blames North Korea For Wannacry Malware

The US administration says North Korea is directly responsible for the ”WannaCry malware” attack affecting hospitals, businesses and banks across the world earlier this year.

The attack is said to have hit more than 300,000 computers in 150 nations, causing billions of dollars of damages.

An Aide to US President Donald Trump made the accusation in the Wall Street Journal newspaper.

Mr Thomas Bossert, who advises the President on homeland security, said the allegation was “based on evidence”, adding that the United Kingdom and computer firm Microsoft have also blamed affiliates of the North Korean government for the attack.
