It’s 2pm – Do you know where your data is at? Inside the South Korean cyber-attack
A cyber-attack in South Korea on Wednesday took the networks of several companies offline. While some recovered in a matter of hours, South Korea’s public broadcasting organization, KBS, is still offline. But the identity of the person or group behind the attacks is still an open question—one muddied by the hackers who are taking credit for at least part of it. It’s not clear at this point if the attack was state-sponsored, cyber-warfare by North Korea or simply an act of cyberterrorism by hackers looking to make a virtual name for themselves.
