This is scary if true
Here's a short piece from UPI I found at The Washington Times website. North Korea has computers trying to break their way into our defense and power grids. This is potentially very serious, I remember Richard Clarke formerly the head for counterterrorism at the NSC(Also author of the Bush bashing Against all Enemies. I'll save my opinions on that book for another time.) saying in a worst case scenario of a cyber attack on our power grid, power could be down for six months.
Seoul, South Korea, Jun. 3 (UPI) -- South Korea's cyber-security experts Friday were assessing a warning North Korea has computer hackers as good as the CIA's.
Byeon Jae-jeong of the Defense Ministry's Agency for Defense Development told the 2005 Defense Information Protection Conference North Korea could damage the Pentagon's command and control grid across the Pacific and even threaten the U.S. domestic power grid, the Chosu Ilbo newspaper reported.
Byeon said Pyongyang employs 500 to 600 hackers who were tasked with hacking into computer networks and disabling enemy command and communication systems. North Korea researched its hacking techniques at Mirim Automation College, a five-year school that has been turning out about 100 cyber-warfare specialists a year since 1981, he said.
The conference was held at Korea University under the joint auspices of the Defense Security Command, Korea University and the Korea Information Security Agency
