Cyberattack Hits South Korean Government Web Sites

This is a developing story with few details but it was just reported about an hour ago on Agence France Presse that South Korean police are investigating a series of cyberattacks against their government web sites.

About 25 sites were down for four hours on Tuesday in a Denial of Service attack that hit the presidential office, the defense ministry and other government web sites.

This follows a report last week, also from AFP, that the South Korean military was setting up a cyberdefense command to fight possible cyberattacks from North Korea and other countries.
