re: South Korea Charges Alleged Hackers
There is a lot going on over there in the KoreaGs. If this guy has been working with foreign governments, then the amount of information should be nothing less than significant. The article did not say much about the other guy, what is he charged with releasing and what is his history? You would figure with al the drama that has been occurring over there that the security of these types of breeches would be in the highest priority.

re: South Korea Charges Alleged Hackers
North Korea's got a lot of bluster for a country with an air force (if you can call it that) that still flies biplanes.

While I think it's important that all of the foreign nationals in South Korea be safe, this whole "conflict" seems to amount to a pair of Yorkshire Terriers with bad attitudes yapping at each other from across the street while their owners exchange friendly hellos. And, of course, those friendly folks from Anonymous have to capitalize on the spotlight being shone upon the Korean peninsula - starting to think that they're just out for the glory and headlines while the real folks that we need to be wary of are the ones that don't seek the headlines and attention.

There are a lot of ifs and whens that will shape this conflict... if China decides they've had enough of Kim Jong-un, expect North Korea to fall like a house of cards. If North Korea pulls the trigger first and goes after Seoul (which is their expected initial target due to proximity to the DMZ), they're not expected to be able to keep a barrage going for long and with a pair of US Air Force Bases in country as well as a carrier battle group based in Yokosuka, Japan, it wouldn't take long (if this administration is willing) to counterpunch.

Meanwhile, keep your popcorn handy as we watch the hacking back and forth between these two Yorkies. It won't get boring, that's for sure.
