North Korea denies involvement in ‘righteous’ Sony hack
North Korea’s government has denied any involvement in the attack on Sony Pictures, but in a Sunday statement indicated that it’s not necessarily unhappy that it happened.
In a statement, the country’s powerful National Defence Commission, which controls North Korea’s armed forces, said it had no knowledge of the attack. The network of Sony Pictures was attacked two weeks ago and hackers have subsequently released gigabytes of corporate documents, some containing personal details on employees.
“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,” the statement said before turning to Sony’s upcoming movie “The Interview,” in which two TV interviewers are sent to North Korea on a secret mission to kill leader Kim Jong Un.
