HMS_Blinkin: DubtodaIll: HMS_Blinkin: DubtodaIll: Because it's just as smart to announce you're developing covert weapons against your enemy.

If your enemy is the embodiment of paranoia, it kind of is.  Now Kim Jong-Un will probably start getting suspicious about which one of his scientists is going to sneak the cyberweapon in.  Being who he is, Kim will thus have all of his nuclear scientists shot, setting the NK nuke program back decades.  And the best part is that SK didn't even create a cyber weapon---all they had to do was write a press release.

Way to let the cat out of the bag.

Or is that what we WANT KIM JONG-UN TO THINK?????


Double bluff.  It's an X-K-Red 27 technique.

naughtyrev: I hope their cyberweapons work on typewriters.


No doubt.  I think the most affective weapon against the north at this point would be create a trail of goldfish crackers through the DMZ.

ciberido: He clearly cannot execute the scientists in front of him.

It's one of the classic blunders.


The other being "Don't get involved in a cyberwar in Asia"?

That should be about as effective as attempting to cripple Mississippi by taking away their toothbrushes and books.

Why is this such a bad idea?  Just because NK isn't on the internet doesn't mean that a cyberweapon wouldn't work.  As I recall the US/Israel got Stuxnet on the Iranian centrifuge computers via a thumb drive someone carried in there.  There's no reason to think that SK couldn't bribe an NK nuclear scientist (and you could probably get one of them to turn traitor in exchange for a few square meals) to do something similar.

Besides, that idiotic homegrown OS the Norks use is probably at least 10 years out of date, security-wise.
