South Korea: Gov’t, Private Sectors Exposed to Chinese Hacker Attacks

This news is from the Chosun Ilbo: “The National Intelligence Service (NIS) confirmed Tuesday that major government organizations and private sectors have been exposed to hacker attacks that came from China and declared the attack a “threat to national security.” As a result, the NIS warned the public to protect their computers from hacking.

The NIS also said that based on their judgment, the attack was not carried out by individuals but involved an organization of some size.”

As damages caused by hacking increases, workers of the National Cyber Security Center monitor information in its situation room in Yoksam, Seoul.
