    Damn those North Korean leaders and hackers, I hope their government goes under.

    Sorry, but I'm not convinced. And it'll take more than proper spell checking to convince me otherwise.

    -first the elephant in the room: it isn't conclusive. That the preponderance (meaning: not everything) of the evidence points to IP ranges in China that were historically (meaning: not any currently any more) used by the Korean intelligence, doesn't mean that it originated there in the first place.
    -second: let's assume that it did. That doesn't mean the government knows about them, let alone has their back. Likewise with the terrorist attacks: it's not because e.g. the bombs in Zaventem airport were built in Brussels that it was government-approved.
    -third: sorry, but is the NSA really an objective source on this? These were the same guys that said they had proof that Saddam had these WMD-thingies. They were wrong on that...do you really trust them when they say they have reasons to believe that they've found something a whole lot smaller and harder to trace?

    Lol. My spell check is trash on my kindle fire so that's my excuse there. I don't think they did it myself but figured I would put it up so see what people had to say about it

    I'm still sceptic of the NK ties, as only the source code was partially the same & not more evidence was there. My points still go out to the shadowbrokers who try to blame it on NK, because everyone would believe it easily. If I'm proven wrong good enough I'll think of my standpoint, but now I still believe the shadowbrokers did it themselves

    On this particular one, I call bullshit. It was leaked through Vault 7 by the NSA and anyone could get it.

    Lets not forget that we know that they can make it look like other countries just by using programmers using that language.

    First and foremost, it'll always be the NSA's fault that this happened.

    Right, just blame the bad guys around and everyone will believe it.

    I had a laugh over the virus. Not over North Korea itself, they're messed up, but I feel it voids the claim open source is bad. Thumbs up North Korea, for once, wait this sounds wrong. Nvm.
