    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.
    I am guessing that they made the folks from anonymous angry

    I'm surprised they even had widespread internet access.

    Though there's always the chance it's random American "hacktivists" (yes, that's a thing) doing it.

    We dont know yet who did this (japan? the US?) but it IS an act of war, just to be clear.
    Cyberattack as an act of war[edit]
    In 2011, The White House published an "International Strategy for Cyberspace" that reserved the right to use military force in response to a cyberattack:[8][9]
    When warranted, the United States will respond to hostile acts in cyberspace as we would to any other threat to our country. We reserve the right to use all necessary means — diplomatic, informational, military, and economic — as appropriate and consistent with applicable international law, in order to defend our Nation, our allies, our partners, and our interests. In so doing, we will exhaust all options before military force whenever we can; will carefully weigh the costs and risks of action against the costs of inaction; and will act in a way that reflects our values and strengthens our legitimacy, seeking broad international support whenever possible.

    International Strategy for Cyberspace, The White House, 2011
    In 2013, the Defense Science Board, an independent advisory committee to the U.S. Secretary of Defense, went further, stating that "The cyber threat is serious, with potential consequences similar in some ways to the nuclear threat of the Cold War," and recommending, in response to the "most extreme case" (described as a "catastrophic full spectrum cyber attack"), that "Nuclear weapons would remain the ultimate response and anchor the deterrence ladder."[10] In a full-scale attack, the report warns of the following scenario:
    Should the United States find itself in a full-scale conflict with a peer adversary, attacks would be expected to include denial of service, data corruption, supply chain corruption, traitorous insiders, kinetic and related non-kinetic attacks at all altitudes from underwater to space. U.S. guns, missiles, and bombs may not fire, or may be directed against our own troops. Resupply, including food, water, ammunition, and fuel may not arrive when or where needed. Military Commanders may rapidly lose trust in the information and ability to control U.S. systems and forces. Once lost, that trust is very difficult to regain.

    The impact of a destructive cyber attack on the civilian population would be even greater with no electricity, money, communications, TV, radio, or fuel (electrically pumped). In a short time, food and medicine distribution systems would be ineffective; transportation would fail or become so chaotic as to be useless. Law enforcement, medical staff, and emergency personnel capabilities could be expected to be barely functional in the short term and dysfunctional over sustained periods. If the attack's effects were reversible, damage could be limited to an impact equivalent to a power outage lasting a few days. If an attack’s effects cause physical damage to control systems, pumps, engines, generators, controllers, etc., the unavailability of parts and manufacturing capacity could mean months to years are required to rebuild and reestablish basic infrastructure operation.

It said the outage was due to an "intensive and persistent virus attack," although offered no further details.

    "The DPRK will never remain a passive onlooker to the enemies' cyber attacks that have reached a very grave phase as part of their moves to stifle it," it said, using the official name for the country, The Democratic Peoples' Republic of Korea.

    I agree that people in our country are, and have been, too scared of terrorism. We gave away some of our civil liberties (The Patriot Act) because of that fear, for example. We should be afraid of it, and protect against it to the best of our ability, but no one can ever be totally protected against terrorism, esp a free society. So we have to accept that, IMO.
