FLASHBACK - British hackers claimed to be behind US and Korean attacks

North Korea had been assumed to be behind last week's DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks on South Korean websites and prominent US targets including the White House, Pentagon, treasury department and the Nasdaq stock exchange. However, Nguyen Minh Duc, security director at Bkis in Hanoi, Vietnam, says his company has "located the attacking source in [the] UK". Bkis was brought in by KrCERT, the Korean Computer Emergency Response Team, to help analyse the malware that was performing the attacks using a botnet of at least 166,908 "zombie" computers in 74 countries.
