NightWatch
For the night of 19 March 2013


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.

 Quoting: Newshunter


Strikes me as very odd. Why during a war between N Korea and S Korea, china feel the need to re-enforce its border with N Korea.

I mean are they expecting a military under the stress of trying to fight its all time nemesis, suddenly mid conflict say, hmm you know what, whilst we're at it, LETS INVADE CHINA! oh yea boss great idea, divert some tanks and men.

What the Fuck.


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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1546575



To keep refugees out.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 648576


yup. and to be ready to take out north korea themselves rather than let the west advance to the border.

China troops will move in when something goes wrong
like they did before. Remember the 1 mln army march which turned the tides of war again and saved NK back then.

It will be either to reinforce NK troops at some stage of war or...
run to the demarcation border before UN troops arrive to secure it so that the border remains there.
They arent gonna let US troops station on the Manchurian border. In this case they will claim to be there to restore peace.

All depends on how will it evolve/escalate.
Wise move.

I would love it if all wars were fought this way. Let's just have a worldwide rules of war declaration that says all wars shall be fought using cyber warfare and rounds of battlefield 3 if there is really a call for battles using soldiers, planes, and tanks. loser agrees to give up what was being fought for, let geeks on screens do the fighting and no one really gets hurt. I like it.

Shit.

Can they still play Starcraft II? I don't want to have to play against noobs today!

I guess that's not funny. This is pretty scary actually. Why would banking institutions AND television networks be affected though, as banks (each different back) and each television network has it's own network. It would make sense if the entire "internet" in South Korea was brought down but since our OP is from Korea that doesn't seem to be the case.

Sounds very sophisticated, well beyond anything I might be able to speculate about.

Hold on a minute. This happened the other way round last week, and North Korea blamed South Korea. I think someone's trying to provoke a war!

"SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea on Friday blamed South Korea and the United States for cyberattacks that temporarily shut down websites this week at a time of elevated tensions over the North's nuclear ambitions. Experts, however, indicated it could take months to determine what happened and one analyst suggested hackers in China were a more likely culprit."

Funny how all this bank stuff is coming up all at once. Don't you think? Maybe this is all set up so they can slide in sideways to save the day and say "For your monetary safety we are going to a one world banking system that has the newest most innovative anti-hacking program available to any computer system. Unfortunately, peon banks don't have access to this program so it's best that all your money be transferred to the One World Bank & TRUST. We already mailed ur new Bank Cards but u must visit your Primary Care Physician (PCP) to activate the card."

Food for thought.
If we don't listen we will never hear the truth

 Quoting: El Tiburon


The malware could have been sitting in SK's computers (and spreading) for a while just waiting for a trigger.
The initial malware installation wouldn't have taken any noticable bandwidth, and the trigger appears to have been time based (everything hit at the same time).

There is no real infrastructure requirement to launch a malware attack, as long as it can spread it will.
