    DPRK's internet has been knocked completely offline. Looks like a cyber attack, but the US is not taking responsibility. I wonder who is responsible

    Does anyone in North Korea besides "inner party" officials even have a computer?

    I believe people in Pyongyang do have access to crappy smartphones and public computers, again almost exclusively hooked up to North Korean internet which is more of an intranet.

    I actually don't think we're responsible (if it's true). It would be poor form to expose weaknesses in their security, which will allow them to fix them, before an actual crisis emerges.

    There is only - one computer; it's called - North Korea.

    I seem to recall reading that the NK Sony hackers worked from Thailand.

    This sounds kind of like wiping out the snow removal infrastructure in Dade County, Fla.

    With North Korea's "thinking" constrained by Kim il-Sung's "Juche" and Kim Jong-il's "Songun" doctrines, one may question whether there is any latitude for serious thinking among its leadership. Hopefully, North Korea will begin to understand that it cannot attack countries or companies in cyberspace with impunity. The latter doctrine might well lead North Korea to attempt to retaliate in cyberspace. Then, a stronger response might be needed. Ultimately, the costs of such attacks should greatly exceed their benefits, especially if the U.S. re-lists North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism and, especially, if the U.S. adopts restrictions on humanitarian aid (which tragically is largely diverted to the regime and its supporters).

    Patience and firmness can begin to shift North Korea's calculus. Although Sony's capitulation complicated matters, the President has handled this situation quite well, so far.
