North Korea Launched WannaCry Virus, U.S. Says

The U.S. government on Monday night accused North Korea of being behind the WannaCry computer virus. In a Wall Street Journal op-ed, Homeland Security adviser Tom Bossert wrote that the U.S. had officially traced the virus to North Korea’s government. WannaCry, which compromised more than 230,000 computers in more than 150 countries in May, has been cited for months as a possible North Korean virus. The Trump administration is expected to make a Tuesday announcement about the virus, calling on allies to enforce all “relevant” sanctions against North Korea, The Washington Post reports.
