North Korea denies hacking Sony but calls the breach a ‘righteous deed’

The secretive state has called the crippling cyberattack a “righteous deed”

The North Korean officials have denied having any relation to the Sony Pictures’ hack. The hack, being called the worst hacks of the time, was said to have taken place in response to the movie The Interview which is about a plan to assassinate North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong Un. Though the state has denying hacking the computer system, it has commented that this attack was a “righteous deed” and has suggested that its “supporters and sympathizers” might be taking revenge on its behalf.

All this was revealed in a statement which was issued by an official Korean Central News Agency and during this time investigators are looking into the source of the attack which has nearly brought Sony to a standstill as the company was forced to shut down all systems.

The KCNA statement said “We do not know where in America the SONY Pictures is situated and for what wrongdoings it became the target of the attack nor we feel the need to know about it.”

Using the official acronym for North Korea, it further stated “But what we clearly know is that the SONY Pictures is the very one which was going to produce a film abetting a terrorist act while hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK by taking advantage of the hostile policy of the U.S. administration towards the DPRK.”
