South Korea Says Cyber Attacks Came From China Sites – Bloomberg

South Korea said a government website was attacked yesterday from Internet addresses in China. The report comes amid concerns that North Korea is mounting cyber attacks in response to international pressure over the sinking of a South Korean warship in March.The attacks took place between 8:20 p.m. and midnight, the Ministry of Public Administration and Security said in a statement posted on its website today. The ministry blocked access after spotting the intrusions, and a probe is being conducted with related government offices, it said.

North Korea’s postal ministry was the source of similar cyber attacks last July that sought to cripple dozens of websites in South Korea and the U.S., the JoongAng Ilbo reported in October, citing Won Sei Hoon, the director of the South’s spy agency.
