"No one is immune to the threat of North Korea", she told reporters before emergency closed-door consultations by the U.N. Security Council on the North's weekend ballistic missile launch, which experts said demonstrated a significant technological jump with the rocket flying higher and for a longer period of time.

A Centre for Strategic and International Studies report in August highlighted that North Korea operated a cyber warfare unit of 3000 elite hackers called Unit or Bureau 121, who has broken into systems and spread viruses. "We want to see more coding similarities to give us more confidence".

Security researchers say China's fondness for pirated software left it especially vulnerable to the latest global cyberattack.

"For now, more research is required into older versions of Wannacry".

Cantopee was created by the hacking team known as the Lazarus Group, perhaps most famously known for the security breach launched against Sony Pictures in 2014.

Security experts are now cautiously linking the Lazarus Group to this latest attack.

The Chinese foreign ministry said at a regular media briefing on Tuesday that it will completely implement existing United Nations sanction measures against the North, but declined to comment further.

Skilled hackers may have simply made it look like it had origins in North Korea by using similar techniques.

Shadow Brokers, the group that has taken credit for that leak, threatened on Tuesday to release more recent code to enable hackers to break into the world's most widely used computers, software and phones.

"There's a lot of ifs in there", added Prof Woodward. "But it's worth looking deeper, being conscious of confirmation bias now that North Korea has been identified as a possibility".

Another cybersecurity firm, FireEye (NASDAQ: "FEYE) is also investigating the WannaCry cyberattack" and cautious about making a conclusion that North Korea was behind it. Russian Federation too was badly affected.

Choi, known to have vast troves of data on Pyongyang's hacking activities, has publicly warned against potential ransomware attacks by the North since last year."I saw signs last year that the North was preparing ransomware attacks or even already beginning to do so, targetting some South Korean companies", he told AFP.

Second, North Korean cyber-attacks have typically been far more targeted, often with a political goal in mind. WannaCry, in contrast, was wildly indiscriminate - it would infect anything and everything it could.

WannaCry has been characterized as a sloppy attack with poor money handling on the ransom end, putting an nearly absurdly small sum in the hackers' Bitcoin account compared to the scale of global havoc they have inflicted.

With more than 200,000 machines infected, it's a bad return.

Another possibility is that the Lazarus Group worked alone, without instruction from North Korea.

"We need to return to dialogue with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, stop intimidating it and find ways to solve these problems peacefully", Putin was quoted as saying, using North Korea's official name.

More questions than answers - and in cyber-war, facts are extremely hard to come by.
