It was always a contention of some in public and private sectors. But now, leaked reports to news services contend that the North Korean government was the source of high-profile cyberattacks in July that caused Web outages in South Korea and the United States. The IP address causing the attacks was traced back to North Korea’s Ministry of Post and Telecommunications, according to the chief of South Korean’s main spy agency. In a dark humor twist, the North Korean ministry leased the IP address from China. The July attacks, in which floods of computers tried to connect to a single Web site at the same time to overwhelm the server, caused outages on prominent government-run sites in the U.S. and South Korea, including the White House.
