I found this article very interesting.
http://realitycheck-news.blogspot.com/2009/07/north-korea-suspected-of-cyber-attack.html

The suspected North Korea missile launch towards the United States this past 4th of July weekend may have come in the form of a computer virus. Starting July 4th and continuing throughout this Tuesday, various U.S. government websites were assaulted by a cyber attack.

But did North Korea really do it?
-The United States and South Korea were attacked; both countries are major enemies of North Korea.
-Internet addresses involved in the attack were traced back to North Korea.
-The assault was more sophisticated than assaults by individual internet hackers.
-Ironically, the cyber attacks began on Independence Day, the day North Korea was to have fired missiles at Hawaii.
A very interesting set of coincidences, I think.

Poli, this is nothing. Last brief I got on the number off cyber attacks that we suffer makes this look like a school yard tussle.

The fact that a foreign government is behind it though - it should be called what it is - an act of war.

If this is true, we should retaliate in kind. We should send them a virus that will take out all their internet security, so that the uncensored internet is suddenly available in NK. Or one that leaves photoshopped images of their leader performing obscene acts with animals on all the government computers.
