The Korea Herald

The government on Tuesday named North Korea as a suspect in the latest cyber attack against the presidential office website and dozens of other government offices and news outlets here.

The latest attack took place from June 25, the anniversary of the outbreak of the 1950-53 Korean War, to July 1, in which the websites of 69 government and private organizations, including the prime minister's office, were attacked.

About 90 percent of the attacked websites and servers have been repaired, according to the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning.

The ministry said the hackers in the latest attack used at least one IP address that had been used in previous attacks by North Korean hackers.
