Bugs & Viruses In the past several days, it appears that at least 35 US- and South Korea-based websites were under attack by a botnet group of computers, causing the attacked domains to become very slow and unresponsive and even putting many out of commission for periods of time. Among the domains were many government websites of their respective countries. It's unconfirmed as to where exactly the attack is being launched from, but South Korean officials believe it to be North Koran forces or those sympathetic to their cause.

Not a BS per se. North Korea does have internet access but it's only for "privileged people". Because North Korea's internet environment is rather isolated, it needs an oversea server for its English news. In this case, it's Japan.
