In October, the British Government said it “strongly” believed North Korea was responsible for the ransomware attack.
Following the allegation from Theresa May’s security minister Ben Wallace, North Korea opposed the accusation and said it was “despicable” and “an act beyond the limit of our tolerance”.
A statement from the state’s propaganda news agency KCNA slammed the allegation and warned Britain to “seriously reflect” on what was being claimed.
The statement said: “The UK has made another attempt to incriminate the DPRK as a cyber-criminal. The DPRK has clarified our principled stand, on every opportune occasion, to oppose terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.”
