  • N.Korea rejects U.S. offer of talks

While this isn't the first report we've seen implicating North Korea, this is the first time the U.S. Government, in an official capacity, has chimed in on the matter.

The public shaming of the state, which has not been confirmed by the White House, is created to hold the North accountable for its actions and "erode and undercut their ability to launch attacks", the official said. An earlier version of the WannaCry ransomware shared coding similarities with past hacks from the Lazarus Group, a shadowy hacking collective many believe work for the North Korean government.

North Korean government representatives could not be immediately reached for comment.

The homeland security advisor goes on to mention strategy to stop future cyber attacks carried out by countries like Iran, and says, "we must call out bad behavior, including that of the corrupt regime in Tehran". Citing foreign media reports, including Newsweek's coverage of a poll that found almost two-thirds of USA citizens were against going to war with North Korea, the state-run outlet called on Trump and his administration to rescind their threat to forcefully disarm supreme leader Kim Jong Un's nuclear and ballistic arsenal, which has continued to grow despite increased US -led diplomatic, economic and military pressure. Kim Jong Un has substantially improved his country's nuclear and ballistic weapons arsenal, threatening to counter any US attempt to invade by force.

The Trump Administration is set to formally name North Korea as the power behind the WannaCry cyberattack that affected hundreds of thousands of computers in 150 countries over the summer.

Bossert called the attack in which victims received ransom demands to unlock their computers "cowardly, costly and careless". The global shipper said in September it expected to sustain a $300 million profit hit as a result of the attack.

They must make quarterback Philip Rivers uncomfortable in the pocket and the Chiefs' defensive backs must win one-on-one matchups. If the Chiefs lose, a division title looks very unlikely with an easy Los Angeles schedule remaining.

The latest reports, however, suggest the United States is going to formally accuse North Korea of the attacks soon. The senior administration official declined to comment about whether US intelligence was able to discern if the attack was deliberate.

What the point of this blame will be remains uncertain, other than piling on amid rising tensions with North Korea.

Looking ahead, Bessert writes that the USA will take steps to curtail North Korea's "ability to mount attacks, cyber or otherwise". Now, seven months later, we finally know who was behind the widespread ransomware campaign: North Korea.
