US Treasury Sanctions North Korea Citing ‘WannaCry’ Attack And Sony Hack

The United States Treasury has sanctioned one individual and another entity over the cyber attack “WannaCry” and a hack of Sony that allegedly cost billions. The U.S. Treasury has officially named North Korean programmer Park Jin Jyok for his involvement in carrying out several cyber attacks against U.S. and global targets.

Park Jin Jyok is said to have been working on behalf of Pyongyang when conducting the cyber attacks that did billions of dollars in damage. The statement issued by the Treasury Department offered minimal evidence against Park, according to Tech Crunch. The statement also said Park was responsible for a hack on Sony  Pictures in 2016, which U.S. authorities had long blamed on North Korea. It was believed, though never confirmed, (which is important considering the US just sanctioned a human being) that the attack was in retaliation for Sony’s production of “The Interview,” a movie in which North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was assassinated.

This feels a little like an excuse to worsen relations with North Korea.  Sanctions certainly will not help – especially once the rest of the world figures out that the US’s sanctions are nothing more than ink on paper. They will “work” until the rest of the world figures it out. They might as well be a poem written down on doodle paper, crumpled up, and tossed in a corner for all anyone on earth even cares.

Park was also accused of carrying out the WannaCry ransomware outbreak in 2017 also on behalf of North Korea. WannaCry ransomware encrypted the contents of tens of thousands of computers for ransom. The attack used stolen exploits developed by the National Security Agency to attack computers across the world, knocking hospitals and other businesses offline.

“North Korea has demonstrated a pattern of disruptive and harmful cyber activity that is inconsistent with the growing consensus on what constitutes responsible state behavior in cyberspace,” the Treasury statement read. “Our policy is to hold North Korea accountable and demonstrate to the regime that there is a cost to its provocative and irresponsible actions.”

The US government has also said Park was sanctioned for his part in the transfer of $81 million from Bangladesh Bank in 2016. Park is said to work for a venture, which the Treasury is also sanctioning. That venture was allegedly operated by the North Korean government.

But it all seems at best, a little fishy…

      Hey jerkwad, you ask a lot of questions for someone that lives on an island with darkies.
      What are YOU going to do? You already left us folks here on the mainland. Did you not?
      Your mysterious island with no name is mommy’s basement. Now jerk off and go to bed.

    These gooks cannot be hurt. These people (civilians) have done with so little for so long they just don’t miss it. ‘Cause “Pork Chop Daddy” don’t appear to have any missed meal hunger pains. You know they take all they can and then some from their civilians. So what’s the point in starving them further?(OOHH-Ouch)…If we just hit them with an EMP the civilians won’t even know it. The PTB will, cause they have electric, refrigerators and whatnot. Put THEIR asses in a spin and do it now.

    That will all be forgiven when Ford opens a plant there next year.
    Watch Harley Davidson open a plant there. WE HAVE A NEW PLACE TO EXPLOIT LABOR.
    BUT, BUT, BUT, ALL THE PARTS ARE AMERICAN!!! IT’S ONLY ASSEMBLED THERE!!!
    Everyone knows damn well that it could happen. Nothing is sacred anymore.

    In what seems to have been a tit-for-tat retribution, SONY was hacked because of it’s propaganda:

    Every time NK did something negative, there was a backstory.

    For instance,
    financial sanctions against NK -> mess with US banks

    If you believe in their sovereignty, leave them alone. If you don’t believe in their sovereignty, make it a vassal state.

    Closure, instead of some vague, kinetic movement and everything being played by ear, indefinitely. You seem much more interested in continual engagement and negative attention, than a productive, timely outcome.

    • Beaumont says:

      I’m not saying that either respective tinpot dictator, with bad hair, was born on a magical mountain, under double rainbows.

      But, if NK had portrayed one of our Western dignitaries, that way (like in the offensive video), you would sh a brick.

      I am not asking you to believe in any color of authority, other than the fact that you live here.

      What if NK thinks the same thing. Just that it’s their guy. Nothing more.

      We are intellectually dishonest, if we expect NK to have no civic pride, or not to do the same basic things that we do, like owning the deterrent of all deterrents.
