CHRIS KENNY:

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and he joins me on the line now. Thanks for joining us Prime Minister.

PRIME MINISTER:

Yeah great to be with you Chris, and a Merry Christmas to you and all your listeners.

CHRIS KENNY:

The Australian Government condemns North Korea’s use of ‘WannaCry’ ransomware to attack businesses and public institutions around the world in May this year.

The ‘WannaCry’ attack showed the rapid, global damage cybercrime can cause to businesses and critical infrastructure.

Based on advice from our intelligence agencies, and through consultations with our allies, we confirm that North Korea carried out the ‘WannaCry’ ransomware campaign.

I have refreshed my Ministry to reflect the priorities and values of my Government. The Ministry features two new, major portfolios: one focused on job creation, the other on national security.
