U.S. – A Kingdom of Cybercrime

Date: 17/11/2021 | Source: Ministry of Foreign Affairs (EN) | Read original version at source

On November 2, the U.S. National Security Council gathered together parties concerned from 35 countries and regions including the EU, UK, France, Germany, Israel, Japan and south Korea to discuss a cooperation plan to cope with the malware “Ransomware” attacks.

Against this backdrop, an official of the spokesmen’s office of the U.S. Department of State asserted on November 3 that north Korea’s cyber activities with a malicious intent pose a threat to the U.S. and the world at large. On the following day, the Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Treasury picked a quarrel with the DPRK at a video conference, saying that north Korea stole or appropriated funds either from the international financial institution or from American companies.

This is a vicious vilification and libel against our Republic, and it is nothing but another farce against the DPRK, which is crammed with falsehood and fabrications.

Whenever incidents of hacking attack broke out worldwide, the U.S., out of its inveterate repugnance for the DPRK, picked on us regardless of the time and kicked up a fuss by filing baseless suits and impounding property. Furthermore, it is misleading public opinion by linking international cybercrime cases with our state organs without any reason.

The main culprit that threatened cyber security is none other than the U.S. The world vividly remembers the brazen act of the U.S. that did not scruple to wiretap even the mobile phones of the leaders of its ally.

According to data, from 2012 to 2014, the U.S. National Security Agency, in conspiracy with the White House, State Department and Defense Department, tapped the phone calls of 35 foreign leaders and stole important political, diplomatic and economic information of other countries through special antennae installed under the roofs of its embassy and consulate buildings in foreign countries.

It is also said that the U.S. is hacking and wiretapping more than 95% of global communications by relying on 200,000-odd secret agents, many spy satellites and a massive database, and it is conducting satellite monitoring on a frequent basis targeting all the objects on earth.

As the former U.S. intelligence agent Snowden testified, the NSA has launched more than 61, 000 hacking operations throughout the world under an internet surveillance program called “Prism”, and it is collecting approximately 5 billion mobile phone records on a daily basis by bugging the phones of almost every country including our country.

Extensive wiretapping and cyber-crime committed by the U.S. on a worldwide scale is an intolerable crime against human rights that infringes upon the human rights of the people of other countries as well as those of the U.S.

The U.S. is a mastermind of cybercrime. It, possessing the world’s largest force for cyber warfare and misusing the internet, is engrossed in cyber warfare against any country, be it its enemy or its ally. It is indeed the height of shamelessness and impudence that such a country is saying this and that about “cyber threat”.

The U.S. would bell well-advised to know that the more it tries to find fault with the other, it will only air its dirty laundry.
