N. Korean media denies hacking South Korean smartphones
Uriminzokkiri says S. Korean spy agency continues using North as scapegoat

North Korea’s state-run Uriminzokkiri news site denied responsibility for hacking South Korean smartphones, criticizing the South’s accusations as the latest in a series of “schemes” to slander the North.

South Korea’s National Intelligence Service (NIS) reported to the parliamentary intelligence committee last Wednesday that more than 20,000 phones were infected with malware downloaded from a disguised game application from May to September.
