WannaCry ransomware attack
The Justice Department unseals charges made in June against an alleged hacker for the North Korean government in connection with a series of cyber attacks, including the 2014 assaults on Sony Pictures. The Federal Bureau of Investigation accuses Park Jin Hyok of conspiring the hack on behalf of Reconnaissance General Bureau, the country's intelligence agency, and conspiring to commit wire fraud.
The criminal complaint marks the first such case against Pyongyang.
