Researchers see possible North Korea link to global cyber attack.                  TECHNICAL DIRECTOR AT SYMANTEC, ERIC CHIEN               " And right now we've uncovered a couple of what we would call weak indicators or weak links between WannaCry and this group that's been previously known as Lazarus. They also did a massive what we call 'wiping attack' on the South Korean broadcasters and also South Korean banks. And most recently, they had been pinned against attacks in Bangladesh on the bank of Bangladesh where they tried to transfer one billion dollars. They made some typos and successfully transferred out $81 million. Sony attacks were attributed to North Korea by the U.S. government and the South Korean government attributed their wiping attacks to the North Koreans as well."
