North Korea May Have Been Behind Global Cyber Hack (WannaCry) Which Brought NHS To Its Knees

     If North Korea is indeed behind this attack/hack, was this a trial run in preparation for a much larger/devastating cyber attack — should hostilities break out between Washington and the West over Pyongyang’s pursuit of an  Intercontinental Ballistic Missile capable of carrying and delivering a nuclear warhead.  
    And, even if this hack is traced to North Korea, one must assume that al Qaeda, the Islamic State, Russia, China, and others are watching and learning.  They will watch our remediation strategy and how long, or not it takes us to reconstitute/recover/reverse engineer, etc,  They will look carefully for shortfalls, gaps, and potential achilles heel/s within our critical national infrastructure. And, ultimately, improve and/or enhance any potential hacking operations they are planning to execute down the road.  RCP, fortunascorner.com
