Re: Breaking: S. Korea Banking Computers, MSM Television networks all down- Hack Confirmed - Blaming North Korea- Shit Just Got Real!
It's funny, I was just talking to my brother about this and he thinks it's "nothing" and that the TV going down is "nothing".

It's scary to think there's delusional people out there, relying on welfare to live, who think this is "ok" to happen. Can you imagine being in South Korea right now?
 Quoting: seekingthehturt


Your brother is fucking right numskull. Who gives a shit? Its like IRAN getting hacked. Nothing will come out of this douche. ALL North Korea is doing is trying to scare the public. They are just not stupid enough to use nukes. Lil Kim is just like his daddy, all talk.

Re: Breaking: S. Korea Banking Computers, MSM Television networks all down- Hack Confirmed - Blaming North Korea- Shit Just Got Real!
North Korea: Comment. The Daily NK contains two articles, based on reporting from contacts in North Korea, that describe the living and food availability conditions during the national mobilization exercises in progress.


They confirm that a partial mobilization of manpower has occurred since 11 March, unlike any in a long time. The only work teams still functioning are those devoted to goods for the armed forces. Production teams that make goods for civilians are participating in or are supporting the training.




Food allocations are based on production output by workers. Closure of a production line for military training terminates food allocations for the workers on that line. Mobilized workers are fed by the army but their families at home must fend for themselves or receive special allocations from the government or pilfered food from the army.




The contacts in North Korea report serious food shortages among the families of the mobilized workers, some of whom have threatened protests. In one major city on the China border, the government made a special allocation to avert a riot.




There are many hardships to living in North Korea, but food shortage is a category of hardship that has prompted public riots in the past that required troops to suppress. Government action to avert them by limited food allocations is an indication of the gravity of the internal situation. The leadership cannot afford to divert military resources to riot control when it is risking general war.




What the reports confirm is that the exercise is a high cost activity because no civilian trade goods are being produced and food is dedicated to the military first. The economic and social costs described in the articles indicate the exercise is more than just training. It is rehearsal and preparation for an action that risks a wider conflict.




The end of China's National People's Congress removes one powerful political constraint on North Korean decision making. The next two or three weeks require special vigilance because of the extent of the North Korean exertions already expended and because spring planting usually starts in April.

Unconfirmed reports state China has sent aircraft and ground forces to reinforce its border with North Korea since the UN sanctions were announced on 7 March and placed border forces on increased alert. The extent of the reinforcement is not clear, but the reports indicate China has taken some extra security precautions against the ripple effects of an armed provocation.

UPDATE: The government is now saying the malware—spread through a Patch Management System—destroyed PCs’ Master Boot Record (MBR). The networks are actually OK, but those affected can’t boot their computers. They also say this attack happened only in Korea.

I hate to get into it, and all. But north korea was capable of both launching a satellite, and building a wmd. I am pretty sure that they are qualified to Hack a service provider. (being we have 16 year olds here in the states getting pinned on that almost daily).

Hacking isnt exactly rocket science ya know...

Just saying, that NK is capable of this act. Not saying that another country wouldn't frame / be starting a war on their behalf or anything like that. Just saying they are mighty capable of sending some maliscious emails.

Being that they are pretty offensive driven on the propaganda machine at the moment I would bet this was an attack by them.

The only reason China would move forces to the border in my mind, would be to resupply their good friends, N Korea, for a war against S Korea and the west.

Only ignorant, video game crazy kids desire war.

Real war is undesirable and yet there comes a time when you must fight.

SK had every right to fuck NK up if these hacking exploits result in injury/death or massive loss of public institutions.

Hacking isn't just for turning off the lights, it can be used to steal money, gather data, change purchase orders, slip in a message in the broadcasting systems...etc


I think there is more to this then just a network hacking.


Maybe it was a localized (ground burst) EMP weapons test.

According to INCA Internet Co., a local security software developer, two words -- "PRINCPES" and "HASTATI" -- were inscribed in the damaged computers' master boot record, which holds general information of their systems.

While "princpes" means "first" in Latin, "hastati" also refers to soldiers standing at the first battle line, which could be an indication that the hackers may attempt another attack on local financial firms and broadcasters.
