Cybersecurity analysts raised doubts on Wednesday that the North Korean state launched recent attacks on U.S. government and South Korean websites, saying industrial spies or pranksters could be the villains.
Too many media sites and blogs that should have known better this morning jumped on the It Must Be North Korea Doing The Net Attacks. But there was never any proof, just vague accusations. Now the media is backing off saying, golly, maybe it was just hackers. Well, yeah.
Someone deliberately slipped in the North Korea accusation – and too many fell for it.
