North Korea may be Behind Global Cyber Attack, say Researchers

  • As per reports, cyber security researchers are linking North Korea with the global WannaCry "ransomware" cyber attack as they found technical evidence.

    Researchers also say that some code in a previous version of the WannaCry software had also appeared in programs which were used by the Lazarus Group, which has been found out to be a North Korea-run hacking operation.

    Reports further said that law enforcement agencies around the world will be following the research closely. The possible culprits could be both foreign nations and cyber criminals.

    Security firms will be studying the code more.
