    Let the cyber wars begin! I think NK will lose, don't you?
    Of course they're gonna lose, that goes without saying. I hope this serves as an example as to why it's time to take cyber security more seriously and that the term "cyber war" is not just a media buzzword.

    Still, it's pretty funny this happened over a movie. It just goes to show how petty and pathetic NK's regime is.

    What's more pathetic is that the movie theaters cancelled all showings because of some petty threats that would never be able to be carried out.

    Whatever, I'm not the moron losing millions of dollars.

    North Korea threatening the USA reminds me of this classic old poster.

    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    While true, it has been the standard operating procedure for North Korea going back a long way.

    It's been the standard operating procedure of a lot of countries that have believed the US is a dog that's all bark and no bite. I think countries in the Middle East have stopped assuming we won't kick their feckin' arses for acting out. North Korea, however, does not seem to be capable of learning from the mistakes of others so you never know.... They might be next up in the queue for some special attention.

    I wouldnt blame Obama yet. Maybe they forgot to pay their internet bill. Or have exceeded their limit for the month.

    What North Koreans are using the internet anyways? The inner party?

    The world seems to think it is a cyber attack so North Korea out of honor is forced to retaliate. And if that doesnt happen there may be a lot of changes going on in North Korea. Their rhetoric has setup themselves up to fail. It would be funny actually if it wasnt North Korea that attacked Sony. SInce that would mean that someone deliberately setup Kim Jong-un, knowing that he would open is fat mouth the way that he did.

    I am secretly fantasizing that this was all internal; a coup. Either way this should be fun to watch.

    If its an internal coup you better hope whoever takes over isn't even more hardline.

    It's an interesting theory and one I hadn't considered but I doubt it, nothing happens in NK without the governments permission.

    Of all the ways I envisage North Korea changing, an internal coup is virtually the only one that could work.

    A revolution is close to impossible.

    Re: North Korea suffering major internet outages: Report

    ...The country, which the FBI accused last week of the cyberattack, is suffering from periodic Internet outages, and experts at DYN Research found that recent problems were out of the ordinary, according to a report from North Korea Tech.....

    The North Korea Tech website mentioned in the CNBC article is very interesting and provides a good timeline of events. It seems the cyber war started last spring by the group Anonymous attacking North Korean government and private interests (and S. Korean, too) and publishing the hacked data.....

    Thousands more DPRK-related website account details published

    They called it a cyber war, too.

    Although it's too soon to know if the U.S. has responded to North Korea's cyber attack, and there may never be public acknowledgement, this development may at least give North Korea reason to begin to think about the consequences of its misuse of cyberspace. Moreover, were North Korea to retaliate, an even more substantial U.S. response could begin to develop deterrence.


    Since they can't waste their time online maybe now they'll do some serious thinking about the consequences of hacking, eh?
