North Korea on Tuesday said that South Korea’s recent announcement 
pinpointing it as the culprit for the April 12 cyber attack was a 
"fabrication," denying its role in the nation’s worst-ever banking 
system crash.

The North’s Defense Ministry spokesperson issued a statement, claiming 
that the announcement last Tuesday was the “same fabrication” as the 
sinking of the corvette Cheonan, according to its official Korean 
Central News Agency.

Investigators at the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office said the 
Reconnaissance General Bureau, the North’s premier intelligence body, 
orchestrated the “unprecedented cyber terror attack” that paralyzed the 
banking system of the National Agricultural Cooperative Federation, or 
Nonghyup, for several weeks.

“The allegations that the North is responsible for the attack are 
baseless and ridiculous. (The announcement) is the same fabrication as 
the sinking of the Cheonan,” said the statement carried by the KCNA.
