N.Korea rejects USA offer of talks

N.Korea rejects USA offer of talks N.Korea rejects USA offer of talks

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

This was enough, at the time, to insinuate North Korea was behind Wannacry, though researchers warned it was "well short of poof, " and that copying snippets of code is not uncommon among unrelated hacker groups.

The Washington Post cited a USA official as saying Trump's administration would be urging allies to counter North Korea's cyberattack capabilities and implement all "relevant" UN Security Council sanctions.

The public condemnation will not include any indictments or name specific individuals, the official said.

Global financial and economic losses from the WannaCry attack that crippled computers in at least 150 countries in May was estimated to be in the billions, making it one of the most damaging incidents involving so-called ransomware. But the shaming is created to hold North Korea accountable for its actions and "erode and undercut their ability to launch attacks", the official said.

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. We will rally our allies, and we will ensure the U.S.is again the leader in securing the internet we invented". The attack forced the company to cancel the release of The Interview, a comedy about two reporters who were hired to assassinate Kim Jong-un.

Considered unprecedented in scale at the time, WannaCry knocked British hospitals offline, forcing thousands of patients to reschedule appointments and disrupted infrastructure and businesses around the world.

FedEx's computer networks were among the most heavily hit. Earlier this month, North Korea said it had successfully tested a breakthrough intercontinental ballistic missile that could place the entire USA mainland within range of its nuclear weapons.

Late on Monday, the Trump administration officially cast blame for WannaCry on North Korea.

Looking ahead, Bessert writes that the US will take steps to curtail North Korea's "ability to mount attacks, cyber or otherwise".

Bossert didn't say what specific actions the United States might take against North Korea, but he said it was important to call out the bad behavior.
