Re: Obama Warns N. Korea Over Sony Hack: 'We Will Respond'

China's good standing in the world

What fucking world is that, and where can I find it.

China is the biggest parasite is the world. They don't respect trademarks or copyrights, and devalue their currency to undercut our industry.

And yet somehow everyone looks the other way.

North Korea probably sees the advantages of remaining anonymous. Like it's not obvious they are behind it.
The Chinese government isn't the one specifically facilitating and organizing specified attacks against us. North Korea fully sanctioned and set up this attack for a purpose. Two totally different animals.

In July 2009, for example, US and South Korean government web sites were hit by what US officials called a "massive" and "powerful" wave of cyber attacks eventually traced back to North Korea.

In one stunning series of 2014 attacks, North Korea designed a free-to-use mobile phone game, not unlike Angry Birds, which it seeded into the South Korean game market. The game spread organically until it was on tens of thousands of South Korean phones. Months later, North Korean hackers remotely activated a piece of malware installed within the game, gaining them access to at least 20,000 South Korean cell phones.

This is how it works, according to defector accounts: promising young talent is recruited out of school. They study at a special school in Pyongyang for five years and are then sent to train in China or Russia, both of which run sophisticated state run cyberwar divisions. These assignments are considered some of the most prestigious in the country and are rewarded with special privileges, housing, and higher status.

The program has been such a success, according to defector accounts, that it has grown from 500 to 3,000 members in recent years. Defectors who spoke to Al Jazeera for a 2011 story on the program listed five reasons why North Korea is investing so heavily in cyberwarfare. Here are those points, paraphrased. With the exception of the second, they are quite astute and strategically correct:

1 Training hackers is more cost-effective than building tanks or fighter jets.
2 North Korea sees its citizens as racially superior at math (the country's attitudes toward race are, shall we say, complex) and other hacking-related skills.
3 North Korea can't use its conventional forces without risking war, but it can launch cyberattacks more safely.
4 Cyberwar is "asymmetrically advantageous" for the militarily weak North Korea.
5 The internet allows North Korea a way to launch external attacks without actually crossing the border.

Movie are a waste of time. I really don't see why anyone cares. Seriously, out of all the hacking that goes on, this is when the public give 2 shits.

Can you imagine if they threatened the great religion of Football. LULZ.

actually if you watch a live time map of hacks going on around the world you'll see that the USA and china are pretty much equal as far as outgoing attacks are concerned....

This may be true I really don't know. But I would assume America targets Chinese hackers, not Chinese businesses. I haven't heard China publicly complain that the American government hacking and stealing Chinese secrets.

I also heard this morning that China has blocked Google and it's programs and apps from its citizens.
