The evidence is mounting up that the WannaCry worm was developed by the Lazarus group (tied to North Korea.) I was initially skeptical of the attribution, it didn’t feel right. But there are stronger links now, and there is a plausible narrative that fits the available facts. I’m willing to accept Lazarus group as the source. A North Korean APT ransomware using US APT exploits released by a Russian APT. (Who says international cyber cooperation needs more work?)
