British spies believe North Korea was behind the NHS cyber attack last month.
The WannaCry ransomware attack affected more than 60 NHS trusts as well as Fedex, Renault and Telefonica.
Those targeted by the hack were asked to pay money to have their data restored.
British cyber experts examining the hack believe it was created by a North Korean cyber gang called the Lazarus Group.
British security sources are unsure whether the attack was ordered by the North Korean government.
An investigation by America’s National Security Agency (NSA) said it had ‘moderate confidence’ the attack pointed to North Korea’s spy agency, the Reconnaissance General Bureau, the Washington Post reported.
