Actually, I'm pretty sure everyone there runs Windows ME
which pretty much explains everything wrong with the country today.
As for whether the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) is responsible for the "Whois Team" trouble in the Republic of Korea (RoK), that's
subject to speculation. However, the timing and targets are noteworthy, and though the people of North Korea are largely cut off from the Internet,
the government most definitely is not.
There is probably a fair amount of "cross-pollination" between North Korea and China in some aspects of cyber-warfare, but their relationship is
complex and asymmetric. This may be part of a proxy war, as Agit8dChop
suggests, but it may also be unilateral, because just as Israel doesn't
always do what the U.S. wants, similar issues exist between Beijing and Pyongyang.
Heck, for all we know, this may just be an elaborate ruse to draw attention away from North Korea's true
objective: to gain exclusive access to
the extended theatrical remix of "Gangnam Style".
