The NSA thinks the ransomware attack may have been an attempt to raise money for the North Korean government.

According to The Guardian, University College London was recently hit by a ransomware attack unrelated to the aforementioned WannaCry attack. Hospitals that have a relationship with the university have suspended their email servers as a precautionary measure.

According to CoinDesk, trader confidence in the cryptocurrency market is fading as many different digital assets fall off their all-time highs. More than 80 of the top 100 cryptocurrencies have seen double-digit declines.
