Message:

Information circulating online about the origin of the attack being in North Korea are false. As noted earlier, we are in a position to confirm that the attack came from inside China and that it was probably caused by a criminal organization trying to access credit card information that could be used in illegal activities in the future. Our preliminary investigation shows that the attack can be traced to a series of IP addresses in Chengdu. We have notified the authorities about this finding.
