In North Korea's case, Kim Jong Un may very well be thinking of using cryptocurrencies, which are not regulated or controlled by any single entity.

"After a careful investigation, the U.S. publicly assigns the massive WannaCry cyber-attack to North Korea", Trump's adviser announced.

One source is quoted as saying: "The Pentagon is trying to find options that would allow them to punch the North Koreans in the nose - get their attention and show that we're serious".

North Korea tested a nuclear weapon in September, its sixth and most powerful nuclear bomb test.

North Korea described the accusation as a "grave political provocation" and said Washington had "ulterior motives".

"Say it with me", tweeted Jeffrey Lewis, director of East Asia Nonproliferation programs at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, "Mobile missiles [like Hwasong-15] don't need launch sites, Donald". It was made possible by a vulnerability in out-of-date versions of Microsoft Windows. Short of blowing up a launch site, where launch officers may die and Kim Jong Un himself usually watches nearby, the United States could attempt to intercept North Korea's next missile launch. North Korea also has artillery along its border aimed at South Korea.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham told the Atlantic last week he believed there was a 30 percent chance of Trump using a military option, but that if North Korea tested another nuclear weapon that percentage would jump to 70.

Destroying North Korean missiles during launch robs Pyongyang of valuable testing, and could ensure that North Korea never actually tests an ICBM shot at full range, meaning they could never be fully confident in their ability to hit the US.

On Tuesday the United Kingdom came out in support of the USA accusations.

The UK recently joined the USA in condemning North Korea for the attack, as has Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and Japan.
