Hackers

North Korea always finds ways to grab the world’s attention.  Everyone has been concerned with the failing health of Kim Jong-il.  And of course, one wonders what will happen now that a successor has been named, namely his son.  Currently, South Korea has been facing a number of attacks from North Korea on its internet infrastructure recently.  According to the Chosun Ilbo (朝鮮日報), a virus caused server connection problems with Woori Bank, Hana Bank, and the Industrial Bank of Korea’s websites.  They even managed to hit the National Intelligence Service website and AhnLab, Korea’s leading computer security company.  The Choson Ilbo’s own site was hacked and I can’t even access the Korean pages.  (If you want to try, visit http://www.chosun.com and see if it lets you on.) 

You can read more about these attacks by clicking on the link below.
