North Korean firm behind WannaCry ransomware attack

According to the experts of UK and the US, the recent global WannaCryptor ransomware attack was initiated by the North Korean Lazarus Group.

While the National Cyber Security Centre in the UK has declined to comment on the reports. However, sources close to the 'The  Guardian' says that for the last few weeks the organization had completed an assessment on the group.

Even another security source has revealed BBC that the NCSC believes that the Lazarus Group was very much behind the WannaCry attack, which spread like a fire around the world over, affecting the computer systems.

 Rob Wainwright, executive director of Europol, said that the attack was unique because of its  “unprecedented” global reach.

Researchers at Elliptic, a British firm that specializes in bitcoin payments, said that " there is no evidence of withdrawals out of the wallets into which money was paid, although people are still paying for them."
