"OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control) designated the North Korean computer programmer Park Jin Hyok for having engaged in significant activities undermining cyber security through the use of computer networks or systems against targets outside of North Korea on behalf to the Government of North Korea or the Workers' Party of Korea", an official statement by the US Treasury Department said.
The indictment alleges that Park took part in these attacks, as well as attacks on including USA defense contractors, university faculty, technology companies, virtual currency exchanges, and US electric utilities, as well as attempted financial institution attacks over the past four years.
The indictment, initially reported by ABC News and the Washington Post, is the first direct set of charges against an individual associated with the North Korean government.
The criminal complaint against Mr Park was accompanied by sanctions against him. The complaint said: "as with the subjects' cyber-attack on [Sony Pictures], the subjects were successful in causing recipients at Bangladesh Bank to download the payload from their spear-phishing emails". Sony canceled the theatrical release of the film amid threats to moviegoers but released it online through YouTube and other sites. "Members of the conspiracy are responsible for some of the most damaging and most well known cyber intrusions in history including the cyberattack targeting Sony Pictures, the cyber heist of Bangladesh Bank and creating the WannaCry ransomware".
Park, who USA officials believe is now in North Korea, faces charges that include conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
Park and Chosun Expo, also known as Korean Expo Joint Venture, were also targeted with financial sanctions by the U.S. Treasury Department.
