Attacks on U.S., Korea sites came from U.K.

The denial-of-service attacks launched on Web sites in South Korea and the United States earlier this month appear to have come from a master server in the United Kingdom, according to security researchers in Vietnam.

The master server controls all of the eight command and control servers involved in the series of distributed denial-of-service attacks that started on the July 4 weekend, security firm Bkis said in a blog posting on its Web site on Monday. Bkis said it gained control of two of the servers.

The Vietnamese firm estimated the number of compromised PCs involved in the attacks

So they managed to locate where all these attacks where coming from through the massive botnet with pc's in 74 countries. That is quite impressive.


Code on the compromised PCs was set to erase or overwrite data late last week but researchers in the U.S. were not aware of any reports of that happening.


What was the aim of these attacks?
Lots of questions, few answers.

Was it an intelligence agency trying to incite a war with North Korea?
The MSM outlets where the first to point fingers at NK. Don't they look like a bunch of fools now.

More questions than answers indeed.

Very suspicious...

It seems we have our fingers in many pies.

Am i right in saying there was something mentioned about communications to the Somali pirates coming from the Uk too?

Either way it makes you wonder what's going on.

Hey, don't leave us out of the fun. According to Wired, a lot of the action originated in Florida as well.

Too late!

We are already the worlds hostel, you invading would be no different to current immigration.
But hey, I doubt our intelligence agency has the intelligence to do something so technical when they can't even arrange a piss-up in a brewery.
Also lets face it, whats more likely to cause a war, nuke tests teased off the shore of Hawaii or a DDOS attack?
I don't think the numbskulls in suits are behind this one, I suspect it means the server PC's are an England based company or that there's a bunch of jackass Koreans doing it from within our country.

Anyway, it's only a matter of time before nukes are raining down and no country will be safe, especially our dump of a free for all island.

North Sea Oil?

My goodness, the pieces all fit! However, how the hell are we going to discern them from the existing immigrant population? Hell, we'll probably just put out ads:

"Invade England, get free stuff from the taxpayer!"
