Ransomware Apocalypse: It Was The North Koreans!

According to news reports running around today, at least a couple of cyber-security firms the North Koreans may be behind last week’s ransomware outbreak. No one seems to be worried about the fact that this is based on an exploit the NSA has been using for some time that was leaked a week or so back. Memories are short, especially in today’s 24/7 news cycles.

Let’s be honest, what’s more concerning that a known international bad actor might be behind this latest ransomware incarnation or that the US government has been using this exploit to spy on friends, allies, citizens and enemies alike for months or years?

God bless
