From 4th of July, dozens of US government and South Korean sites were hit by a huge attack, which is sourced from North Korean.
According to Reuters, The National Intelligence Service (NIS) said in a statement that it’s possible that North Korea orchestrated the attacks, with the same allegations appearing in the South Korean media. Since Internet access is strictly controlled in North Korea, it’s hard to imagine a mere group of government sympathizers conducting such an attack, which, according to NIS, requires “meticulous preparations.”
“This is not a simple attack by individuals. The attack appeared to have been elaborately prepared and staged by a certain organisation or state,” Seoul’s National Intelligence Service (NIS) said in a statement.
Yonhap news agency said the NIS, which has launched an investigation, told parliament’s intelligence committee that the communist North or people sympathetic to the isolated state may have been to blame.
