U.S official: United States will charge North Korea over Sony hacking

WASHINGTON - The US Justice Department is poised to charge North Korean hackers over the May 2017 global WannaCry ransomware attack and the 2014 cyberattack on Sony Corp, a US official told Reuters on Thursday.
The charges are part of a strategy by the U.S. government to deter future cyberattacks by naming and shaming the alleged perpetrators.
