North Korea UN Envoy Demands US Prove WannaCry Claims
Local Editor

Fed up with allegations by US Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert, the North Korean ambassador to the United Nations called on Washington late Monday to reveal evidence showing that Pyongyang was behind the WannaCry ransomware attack, as it claims.

Ambassador Pak Song II, speaking to AP in a phone interview, told the outlet that Bossert's statement, which was published in the Wall Street Journal last Monday, was simply an effort by the US to further create an "extremely confrontational atmosphere."

"If they are so sure, show us the evidence," Pak said.
Bossert's op-ed claims that "the attack was widespread and cost billions, and North Korea is directly responsible."

"We do not make this allegation lightly. It is based on evidence," Bossert wrote. "The United Kingdom attributes the attack to North Korea, and Microsoft traced the attack to cyber affiliates of the North Korean government."

In the days after the op-ed was released, Pyongyang fired back at the US and asserted that it had "nothing to do" with the attack and that the claims were simply "absurd."

Pak isn't the only one voice skepticism about the 42-year-old adviser's allegations.

Officials in Washington and Seoul have accused the North of launching a series of cyberattacks in recent years, including the hack on Sony Pictures Entertainment over the movie "The Interview," a black comedy about a plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The North has denied those accusations as well.

The WannaCry ransomware attack took place in May and infected hundreds of thousands of computers globally, even crippling parts of the UK's National Health Service.
