On Monday December 22, 2014 it was reported that North Korea’s Internet service was suspended. It was rumored to believe that hackers were behind the digital attack, and was a response to everything, which has been revolving around the film “The Interview” which was cancelled for release for this Wednesday (But more than 200 theaters agrees to show this movie starting on Christmas).
The Internet of the isolated country services were shut down for almost ten hours. For Americans and the rest of the world would be unconceivable because our lives now revolve around the Internet. It turns out that a large majority of North Korea citizens does not have access to the Internet, so it may not have affecting the lives of too many of them. While many citizens were not missing out on their Internet service a message was sent to the North Korean government.
Cyber-vandalism has been around for a while now, but it is the current trend in the political world for it makes a bold statement in which the world can see. No one is sure who was behind the North Korea Internet hacking, but America would the prime suspect. When questioned about the situation the White House stated “We have no new information to share regarding North Korea today,” and “If in fact North Korea’s Internet has gone down, we’d refer you to that government for comment.” The vagueness and shortness on the subject does raise a few eyebrows and a few suspicions, cause Obama did say that we would respond to the Sony Hacking, but there is still no confirmation about who is behind it all. The Internet is back up and running, but it still has its glitches that North Korean computer technicians need to work on to repair.
