Who's behind the ransomware pandemic? One small clue points to North Korea • Forbes
Thomas Fox-Brewster:
<p>The clue lies in the code. Google security researcher Neel Mehta posted a mysterious tweet linking to two samples of malware: one was WannaCry, the other a creation of a gang of hackers called the Lazarus Group, which has been linked to the catastrophic 2014 hack of Sony and attacks on the SWIFT banking system that resulted in a record $81 million cyber theft from a Bangladeshi bank. Lazarus was also said to be North Korean, according to previous analyses by numerous security firms.

After Mehta's post, Kaspersky Lab probed the code, as did Proofpoint security researcher Darien Huss and founder of Comae Technologies Matthieu Suiche. All have been actively investigating and defending the web against WannaCry and were intrigued at the possible link to North Korea.

All believe that Mehta's find could provide a clue as to the possible creators of WannaCry, which has resulted in huge downtime for hospitals in the U.K. and caused downtime in Nissan and Renault car factories, amongst other issues. But, they all note, it could be a false flag purposefully lodged in the code to lead everyone down the wrong path.</p>

North Korea demands that the U.S. hand over would-be assassins of Kim Jong Un - The Washington Post
In 1983, North Korean agents detonated a powerful bomb by remote control during a wreath-laying ceremony attended by a visiting South Korean presidential delegation in Rangoon, Burma. South Korea's then-president, Chun Doo-hwan, escaped unharmed, but the blast killed 21 other people — including 17 South Koreans, four of them cabinet ministers.

In 1997, a member of Kim Jong Un's extended family who defected was fatally shot on a South Korean street by assailants from the North.

In 2009, Pyongyang allegedly paid about $40,000 to have dissident Hwang Jang-yop, secretary of North Korea’s ruling Workers’ Party until he defected in 1997, killed. The attempt was unsuccessful.

In 2011, a defector to South Korea suspected of being a North Korean secret agent was arrested on suspicion of attempting to assassinate Park Sang-Hak, an outspoken critic of the Pyongyang regime. South Korean authorities said the suspected agent had set up a meeting with Park in a subway station in Seoul and planned to kill him with a poison pen.

And, most recently, the North Korean regime has been widely blamed for the death of Kim Jong Nam, the estranged older half brother of Kim Jong Un. Malaysian authorities said he was attacked by two women at the Kuala Lumpur airport; one grabbed him and the other covered his face with a cloth doused in a liquid, which Malaysian investigators later identified as VX nerve agent, a banned chemical weapon.

He died on the way to the hospital.
