The whodunit surrounding the recent hacking at Sony Pictures Entertainment has taken another twist.
Two principal theories have suggested that the attack could be the work of North Korea or disgruntled former or current Sony employees.
"Linking the DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea] to the Sony hacking is another fabrication targeting the country," the unidentified official told news outlet Voice of America on Wednesday. "My country publicly declared that it would follow international norms banning hacking and piracy."
Sony found itself the target of a massive security breach that leaked several finished films, personal information about thousands of employees and other confidential documents.
Earlier this year, when Sony began marketing the "The Interview," the North Korean government made it clear it wasn't happy about the production. The plot of the upcoming comedy, co-directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, depicts a fictional attempt to assassinate leader Kim Jong Un.
"The investigation continues into this very sophisticated cyberattack," the company said Wednesday.
