Seriously?  I'll bet it also pops up "Access Denied" in giant flashing red-on-white san-serif font when you try to 'access the mainframe'.

flucto: Man, I hope this turns out to be some smart ass in Iowa trying to stir up trouble. If it really is DPRK shiat will get real in a hurry.


I just have a hard time believing they have the capacity to do this. In my head - all of the computers in the DPRK are cardboard cutouts with people inside making beeping noises for legitimacy.

/I'm sure that the palace hassle one.
// for some reason - everything they do to "attack" someone else seems comically full of fail.

13km south of the DMZ and I feel just fine. South Korean TV is showing...

Well ok, SBS 8:00 news is talking about hacking,,, Phew, KBS1 is a panel show about... remote control aircraft... OK, only toys. MBC news is showing computer code and explaining what hacking is.. The rest is the usual fare.

BBC has The Obama Road Show: Jerusalem Live! CNN is a rerun of Piers Morgan with Micahel Moore.

All in all, no reason to panic.

/Michael Moore just spouted "military industrial complex."
//Now back to Top Gear to see what Jeremy, Richard and James are up to.

You all joke now.  But sooner or later, they'll be coming for your porn.  And you won't know what to do when your wife leaves to go shopping for an hour or two.  And you'll watch poker on ESPN and it will be terrible.

FTA: "The shutdown appeared to be more of an inconvenience than a source of panic."

nymersic: The attack doesn't need to start in Best Korea for it to be because of them, by the way.  I've known some American supporters of the DPRK even.  There's people everywhere willing to swallow propaganda, and fight for a bullshiat cause.

Don't forget the ones that are doing because they are $750,000 in debt and have pretty much worn out their welcome in the rest of the world.

bluecrabscribe: I seem to recall a huge outage of the US baking system back in the early '90s.  I remember it was in mid-December because I was doing my Christmas shopping and the stores were only taking cash.  Came back up a few hour later.  Wasn't a hacker, it turned out to be an AT&T tech who didn't understand BGP.

Sgygus: Neither banks nor broadcast media have guns.  One would think that if this were a prelude to a military offensive, that South Korean military communications would be the ones under attack.


Uh... no.

Hacking into the military's computers wouldn't disrupt much. They're all redundant and there's back ups on top of backs ups and alternative options. Even preemptively killing off one of their communication systems would only mean they switch to a different one. You can't DDoS analog systems.

Civilian networks are backbones, though. You take out their servers and they're toast. Shut down the banks and the TV and the people panic. Get the people panicked and that's damage done. Economic and social.

Also because it's a cyber attack you don't kill anyone so the UN doesn't start bombing you like they would if you were to use a warplane to cause the same disruptions.
