​North Korea Offers To Help Find Sony Hackers & Warns Of 'Serious Consequences' If The U.S. Rejects

In a new twist to the Sony hacking scandal, North Korea so strongly denies that they're behind the cyberattack, that they've offered to help the United States find the hackers.

Well, really, they threatened the U.S. to let them help, or to suffer "serious consequences."

On Saturday, a spokesman for the country relayed a message, stating:

"The U.S. should bear in mind that it will face serious consequences in case it rejects our proposal for joint investigation and presses for what it called countermeasures. We have a way to prove that we have nothing to do with the case without resorting to torture, as what the C.I.A. does."

However, there are a lot of similarities behind this attack on Sony and one they likely perpetrated on South Korean banks last year, like wiping out the systems they hacked into, which cyberattackers normally don't do.

The country also immediately denied involvement, but called the hack a "righteous deed."

Mark Stroh, a National Security Council spokesman, made it VERY clear that the U.S. has no intention of working with them though. He said:

"We stand by this conclusion. The government of North Korea has a long history of denying responsibility for destructive and provocative actions. If the North Korean government wants to help, they can admit their culpability and compensate Sony for the damages this attack caused."

Sony has taken a multimillion dollar bath due to the unrelease of their film The Interview, after the hackers promised retaliation on any theater that screened it. They've also been embarrassed by leaked emails, and lost money on other unreleased movies that were stolen.
