Duh. China is the source of most hacking attacks. I thought it was funny how they were blaming North Korea at first. How many computers does that country even have, like 5? And they're all probably running Windows 95.

Aren't they still dealing with someone installing BonziBuddy in Best Korea? Perhaps it's hacking by proxy.

Years ago people high up in government and business here in the USA were almost proud announcing that China was the next superpower. Back then it seemed so odd to me....Since when did another country just hand it over for short term profits for just a few. Nothing against people from China wantng their slice of the pie, but did we have to make it so easy?

We should deal wit this as if North Korea did it....well South Korea should at least. South Korea today, us iover here in the USA more and more down the road. Maybe we should start looking outfor ourselves a lot better, instead of thinking China is 100% our pal.

It amuses me how overly defensive and chip-on-their-shoulder China is about everything.

"Screens went blank with skulls popping up on the screens of some computers - a strong indication that hackers planted a malicious code in South Korean systems"

Now that is first rate detective work.

First, we have to define what "us" is. If we buy into one definition, "we" are a few big corporations and the wealthiest 3 or 4% of our population - and by that definition, we are doing exactly what is in "our" interests.

Actually, they have their "own" OS called Red Star OS. It is based on Linux.  It uses a modified browser based on Firefox that can only browse their own intranet.

Did subby read the article or is just trolling?

FTA: "It's too early to assign blame to China or North Korea, since Internet addresses can easily be manipulated."

Four paragraphs down.  That's all you had to do.
