    Re: Obama Imposes New Sanctions On North Korea In Response To Sony Hack

    the only sanction I approve of, in regards to NK, is.... "you get nothing ... ever... nothing, zip ,zilch , nada...we won't give to you, we won't sell to you, and we don't acknowledge you exist on this planet... please die."

    the very least we can do, if we won't take direct actions against the unfathomable human rights denials there, is to completely and utterly ignore them.... let them all die.

    I don't think the cult of personality has waned even a little bit... there's no evidence of it waning, anyways

    Instead, the data pointed to a former employee who may have collaborated with outside hackers. The employee, who left the studio in a May restructuring, had the qualifications and access necessary to carry out the crime, according to Stammberger.
    Moreover, names of company servers and passwords were programmed into the malware that infiltrated the studio's network, suggesting hackers had inside knowledge of the studio's systems, Stammberger said."

    Sanctions are apparently a great idea for oppressive communist regimes NOT occupying Cuba...but one cant help but hope the reasons and rationale are at lest legit.

    Heya VM. I saw that to. I had this up in Northern Lights Thread on something similar.




    This is Lizard Squad, the nebulous hacker group now tied to the Sony hack......

    Best known among gamers, Lizard Squad is both despised and revered for their seemingly random assaults on the video game world. They've claimed attacks on Call of Duty, Xbox, Sony Playstation, and now are being linked to the Sony Pictures hack. And now, at least one security firm is tying Lizard Squad to the Sony hack. Earlier this week, Los Angeles cybersecurity firm IntelCrawler told Bloomberg that both Lizard Squad and Guardians of Peace, the unknown group that has taken credit for Sony, share the same hacking timelines and slang.

    The nebulous group was able to take these servers down through a DDoS, or distributed denial of service, attack in which it directed Internet traffic to overwhelm its targets' servers. Less than a week later, Lizard Squad made headlines when it tweeted a fake bomb threat to American Airlines and successfully grounded the plane. Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley was on the flight.....snip~

    Not when it comes to you automatically accusing anyone who questions these sanctions of being blinded by hatred for the Obama administration. I like Obama on some things, I dislike him on others. This is one of the things he has done while in office that I vehemently disagree with. Has nothing to do with partisanship or my personal opinion of the man and I'm sure the same could be said for OrphanSlug, who seems to be largely unpartisan from what I've seen.

    I read into it a partisan bias, which I was attempting to call out, not introduce. Perhaps I've misread it.

    The thing that interests me the most here, is the last sentence in the White Houses press release. The "first aspect". Is that denying that the US government was behind the attack that lead to the DPRK's whole internet going completely dark? But always, more sanctions on the DPRK, expect the DPRK to try to make some noise with their petty rhetoric and actions. [/FONT][/COLOR][/INDENT]


    I believe the shut down has been attributed to independent hackers. There is also a growing opinion the DPRK was not behind the Sony attack.

    Greetings, F&L.

    Sanctions on North Korea? How and why would we sanction NK? I wasn't aware that we were dealing with them to any extent sufficient to sanction them on anything. They apparently believe we were behind their internet blackout, and we said we weren't. I doubt that many NK people even know what the internet is in the first place, so what's this all about?

    these are the groups/people we just blacklisted from doing business with us
    They included the Reconnaissance General Bureau, the government's main intelligence organization, and two top North Korean arms exporters: Korea Mining Development Trading Corporation (KOMID) and Korea Tangun Trading Corporation.

    The individuals named included agents of KOMID in Namibia, Russia, Iran and Syria, and other representatives of the government and the sanctioned organizations.
    US slaps sanctions on North Korea after Sony hack | Daily Mail Online

    additionallyfrom the same link")
    The sanctions forbid US individuals and companies from doing business with those blacklist, and freezes any assets those blacklisted might have on US territory.

    A particular aim of such sanctions is to limit their access to international financial services by locking them out of the US financial system.
    NK needs to be globally sanctioned .. 100%.. nothing in, nothing out.

    I'm trying to imagine what a sanction against North Korea would look like. Perhaps we would stop allowing visits by basketball celebrities?
