    "The White House declined to comment Monday. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters that of the federal government responses, "some will be seen, some may not be seen."

    Doug Madory (Muh-DOOR-ee), director of Internet analysis at Dyn Research, said the Internet connectivity problems were discovered in the last 24 hours and have gotten progressively worse to the point that "North Korea'stotally down."

    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.

    Sweet.

    Only one problem with the scenario that I see. It would mean we would have to do something to the Chinese. Which they could agree to allow us to do so. Or they might just get a bit upset about that.



    Since the United States has turned to China to pressure North Korea, it is also conceivable China's supplier of North Korea's Internet, China Unicom, closed access, or an outside group, hackers or a foreign government, has overloaded North Korea's broadband traffic.

    Terrorism is one of the easiest things in the world to do. All it takes is a couple of N.K. sympathizers and a little ammo and boom! 125 dead people in a theater. Or a guy in a comic book outfit with a couple of semi-automatic rifles, and rat tat tat tat tat....75 people shot, including babies. That's why it's used as a tool. Anyone can do it, anywhere, any time. Almost impossible to protect against it, esp in a free society.

    It was my understanding that the U.S. turned to China for more than putting pressure on N. Korea. It's China's techie skills, etc.

    Meh we could just do it DDoS their servers, and we very well could be working with the Chinese.

    So far they have not responded back or came out blaming us. Plus I think they would be talking to the Chinese, if they knew it was coming from an outside source.





    It is possible North Korea's Internet access simply crashed on its own due to poor maintenance, or that the government shut it down unilaterally, as Syria's has done in the past, to prevent those with Internet access to gain international perspective on the hacking attack.....snip~

    "The situation now is they are totally offline. This isn't normal for them. Usually they are up solid. It is kind of out of the ordinary. This is not like anything I've seen before," Doug Maddry of Dyn Research, Inc., of Torrance, Calif., told Bloomberg News, the website Engadget reported.

    This scenario is doubtful. From CNN:

    "After 24hrs of increasing instability, North Korean national Internet has been down hard for more than 2hrs," Dyn Research posted on Twitter on Monday.
