Rumors of War

Report: North Korea behind WannaCry virus cyberattack -
UPI reports: "North Korea could be behind the WannaCry malware virus attack that paralyzed computers in more than 150 countries in May, according to the National Security Agency. The Washington Post reported Wednesday the NSA made an assessment last week and with 'moderate confidence' could say Pyongyang's Reconnaissance General Bureau was behind the cyberattack that affected 300,000 computer users worldwide."

Comment: It's definitely a new era for war and conflict. From other sources I've read, it's very difficult to say with absolute certainty who is responsible for such attacks and I would be surprised if they took any retaliatory action without more evidence.
