Latest July 2009 cyber attacks Stories
Official North and South Korean websites were reportedly attacked on Tuesday by unknown hackers on the anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War (1950-1953), which divided the Korean peninsula.
South Korean government and private websites have been attacked by cyber criminals a year after a major attack crippled sites briefly both domestically and in the United States, according to officials on Thursday.
