North Korea's ambassador to the United Nations renews calls for the US to lay out the evidence that WannaCry was a DPRK campaign.
In the US, the FBI's fingerprint analysis software was supplied by a then-subsidiary of France's Safran Group in 2011 (so far so good). But ex-Safran whistleblowers allege the company purchased some of the code it used from Russia's Papillon Systems, a security company boasting FSB ties (which seems less good). The FBI says it checks all its software for problems, suggesting it found none here.
Vietnam has announced formation of a 10,000-strong cyber operations unit. A senior general's remarks about the unit indicate that it will be heavily involved in information operations (combatting "wrong views").
Russian information operations continue to exercise US policy mavens.

Recent law enforcement operations again suggest that controlling objectionable content is difficult. Ukrainian police are taking down a disturbingly large number of social media accounts devoted to encouraging the troubled and lonely to commit suicide.

Other reports from the UK complain of unrestrained depravity in the comments added to videos underage YouTubers themselves post.
