North Korea denies it stole $2 billion through hacking banks and cryptocurrency exchanges
In a statement via State Media, Korea Central News Agency (KCNA), officials in NK say they didn't do it!
You may recall a few months back the UN concluded tNK had stolen the money:
"Democratic People's Republic of Korea cyber actors were raising money for its WMD (weapons of mass destruction) programs, with total proceeds to date estimated at up to two billion US dollars."
Says NK's National Coordination Committee of the DPRK for Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism
- "Such a fabrication by the hostile forces is nothing but a sort of a nasty game aimed at tarnishing the image of our Republic and finding justification for sanctions and pressure campaign against the DPRK."
