Did you guys not read that NK had nothing to do with the Sony hack, it was a disgruntled former employee with knowledge of the internal server structure.
Seriously, NK can barely keep the lights on in most cities, Nevermind the technological infrastructure to pull off highly sophisticated cyber attacks.
The only reason they don't get smacked down is for the simple reason that there aren't even enough resources there to justify... And they do have the military to destroy a good chunk of South Korea. Seriously, they can't even keep the Internet up and running in the country.
