South Korea reported that several banks and TV stations had their computer networks taken down. A new BBC report says that the attack came from a virus. If North Korea is behind the virus is still unclear.
North Korea accused just last week that the US would attack its internet servers. Are the North Korean servers actually connected to the global internet?
In any case. North Korea is believed to have led Cyber Attacks against South Korea in the past. And this virus could be the latest attack from Kim Jong Un.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
