The Korean Central News Agency said Seoul fabricated evidence saying Internet protocol addresses were linked to the north - even though the recent data breaches were "believed to have been caused by an [unidentified] group of North Korean hackers."

 

North Korea is believed to have a budding cyberespionage program, with most of its efforts targeted at South Korean banks and other critical infrastructure.
