Suspected North Korean cyberattack raises fears for S. Korea – Washington Post

An article from today’s Post provides a solid outline of recent North Korean cyberattacks on the South; a story we have been following here (NK Hackers Working with SK Organized Crime?, NK Hackers Take Down SK Bank, SK Cops: North Responsible for March Cyberattack, Cyberwar in Korea – Kim Jong-eun’s Key to the Throne?) for several months.

Particularly salient, in my humble opinion, are the rumors/allegations that heir apparent Kim Jong-eun is behind the attacks, using them to outflank his brothers and win his father’s approval to become next in line. Whether or not he is personally behind the attacks, one of the safest bets in international security right now is that they will both continue and grow more sophisticated.
