The defense minister Ben Wallace said the administration now believes a North Korean hacking crew was engaged but ended short of suggesting the UK could carry out retaliatory attacks.
“This attack, we think quite firmly that this came from a foreign state,” Mr. Wallace said. Adding that the state needed was “North Korea”, he said: “We can be as sure as convincing. I obviously can’t go into the part of intellect, but it is widely believed in the region and across a number of nations that North Korea had taken this role.”
Asked what the UK could do in reply to the attack, the ambassador acknowledged that it would be “questioning” to arrest anyone when a “hostile state” was involved.
