N. Korea blames S. Korea for hackings

The South Korean government has recently taken a hit over the National Intelligence Service’s purchase of equipment from Italy’s Hacking Team, facing accusations that the hacking equipment was used against its own citizens. The North Korean media, however, picked up the story from a different angle.
