    The attack slowed down and, in some cases, shut government websites, including the site of the presidential office, for several hours.

    For that we should thank BOTH (AMD and Intel) companies!

    The article seems to hint they want to blame North Korea

    But I think Iran is the target of choice at this time, unless someone found oil in North Korea I didn't know about

    Hahaha!
    A widespread computer attack? I think they should look at this as a free stability test. Like Linpack for their network security.

    Carefully track down who was responsible and shoot them in the head. I bet nobody else will DDoS any countries digital infrastructure.
