It’s been reported that over the 4th Of July weekend, numerous government agency web sites which included The Treasury Department, Secret Service, Federal Trade Commission and Transportation Department were all under cyber attacks. A similar attack also happened in South Korea, knocking out many government web sites such as the presidential Blue House, the Defense Ministry, the National Assembly, Shihan Bank, Korea Exchange Bank and top Internet portal Naver. U.S. officials refused to discuss details of the attacks. Amy Kudwa, spokeswoman for the Homeland Security Department said the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team issued a notice to federal departments and other partner organizations and “advised them of steps to take to help mitigate against such attacks.” This has been called a sophisticated attack and unusually lengthy, considering they also attacked the agency that’s responsible for fighting cyber crime!! The first suspect is North Korea.
