    North Korea’s Internet is going suspiciously haywire


    December 22 at 1:42 PM

    North Korea was having a bit of trouble getting online on Monday. Actually, "a bit" is probably an understatement. What little Internet infrastructure the country has is suffering from widespread outages right now, according to North Korea watchers.

    The connectivity problems are coming just days after President Obama warned of a "proportional response" to North Korea, which is suspected of breaking into Sony's network in a major cyber hack. It's not yet known whether the United States is responsible for the downtime. But according to Dyn Research — which earlier this year bought the respected network analysis firm Renesys — North Korea's Internet is currently showing unusual amounts of instability.

    “I haven’t seen such a steady beat of routing instability and outages in KP before,” said Doug Madory, director of Internet analysis at Dyn Research. “Usually there are isolated blips, not continuous connectivity problems. I wouldn’t be surprised if they are absorbing some sort of attack presently.”


    Attack Is Suspected as North Korean Internet Collapses

    SAN FRANCISCO — North Korea’s already tenuous links to the Internet went completely dark on Monday after days of instability, in what Internet monitors described as one of the worst North Korean network failures in years.

    The loss of service came just days after President Obama pledged that the United States would launch a “proportional response” to the recent attacks on Sony Pictures, which government officials have linked to North Korea. While an attack on North Korea’s networks was suspected, there was no definitive evidence of it.

    Doug Madory, the director of Internet analysis at Dyn Research, an Internet performance management company, said that North Korean Internet access first became unstable late Friday. The situation worsened over the weekend, and by Monday, North Korea’s Internet was completely offline.

    The number is really small per capita. I have no idea what shutting down the internet there accomplishes, unless it's used to control infrastructure??

    Next major war it's probably going down here I'd guess. Wouldn't it be a good idea to make a parallel system that isn't connected to anything outside of the US? You know, so Dawgshed doesn't go down during WWIII.

    If they can fly to the Sun, land on it at night and return the next day, they should have no problem fixing their internet connection.
