The cyber attack WAS supposed to be a prelude to physical attack by N.Korea, but that strategy of 'shutting down communications and power links' by N Korea failed.

In 2010, a test was conducted by N.Korea in cyber attack on S.Korea, as reported by agencies, in an attempt to see if it was possible to use that strategy with DDOS style attack, but failed.

This time, the attack was different, not DDOS, but far more malicious - worms, which can be uploaded into non-internet servers but intra-net servers through the use of N.Korean sympathizers with thumb drives in S.Korea, within the power grids, airports, military, etc.

Fortunately, today, the OS and protection devices worked, and only a few computers, (32,000 out of millions of computers) were taken down. Back ups were online within minutes. The shutdown that Baby Kim was fooled to believe will occur...never happened.

N.Korean forces are back in bunkers and staging points, as no command for assualt could be given. Baby Kim may be mad, but he is not stupid. Without a total shutdown on the power and comms grid, its troops and aircrafts will be pure sitting ducks when it crosses the border.

Whoever that hacker group commander was, his head is probably already separated from his body to present to Baby Kim, for the failure.

S.Korea only needs to vigilante, protect its internet and intranet servers, and have backups always.

It is only a matter time when the full effects of the sanctions will take place, at which either the hungry N.Korean army will start to feed on the Fatboy Kim, or he goes on a suicidal last stand gottermederung drive across the border.

I think it is risky to use internet for such an important puposes. Why? There are people who can easely get into system... Maybe independent lines? Maybe, if you create network separatly from telecoms, but, in that case, they can not to allow work to you? However, I have read somewhere that Germans created methods to take control upon PCs without any connection, wireless, using ALREADY integrated elements and components, even to non-networked computers... It is enough to can get close enough... No details were mentioned, only that fact.
I think that one must have its own production of PCs, from ingot to completed computers, to can be safe enough. And, who can grant that people from the police, who are controlling that, will not make abuses, in purpose of their personal, or group, corporate, interests?

NK does not have the resources for such attacks. They are being helped.

Don't believe everything you hear or see. If you are interested in computer networks and protocols, there is some great literature out there.

Wireless networks are extremely dangerous and you should stay away from them. WEP can be cracked with a small laptop under 5 minutes. If you have a powerful video adapter (such as recent NVIDIA cards), you can crack WPA under 24 hours.
