Both the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI warn North Korean hackers are still targeting U.S. sites.

According to the report, they are using cyber tools to go after U.S. media and aerospace, as well as financial and critical infrastructure sectors.

It shows IP addresses linked to Pyongyang-based networks that hijack computers, shutting down the targeted networks by flooding them with digital requests.

The warning is meant to help computer administrators identify those cyber attacks.

This follows a security firm’s report earlier this month, saying hackers were focusing on U.S. defense contractors.

  1. I work in a computer R&D lab, and our firewalls block hundreds and sometimes thousands of hacking attempts per day from N. Korea and China. If China is our ally, we don’t need enemies.

    We need to build up our Cyber Counter attack on these countries!
    The axix of evil nations, (NOK, IRAN, CHINA, RUSSIA) uses this method to attach the US, because they cannot beat us militarily.
    Obozo and company did provide these countries a lot of our tech not to mention uranium.

    Hopefully American Cyber intelligence experts will outshine KJU!

    Do they set up technology labs in other countries … like China or Russia? So they are encouraged to retaliate by the Sino-Russo montage …

    • Just Iran as far as we can tell. China is mostly afraid we will collapse NK’s economy completely and cause a flood of refugees which they don’t want so they’re unhappy with us. Russia just gave them a big
      “Behave Yourself!” by flying their nuclear bomber group along their common border. Our DARPA and NSA created most of the basic technology the internet uses so it stands to reason, if we want to get in to North Korea we can. Their bit seems to be figuring out how to cause as much trouble as they can without triggering such an incursion. You can bet we have a high priority on bringing them down without firing a single shot.

  6. Time to use microwave technology on him.

    Fat Boi is skinny. Maybe his heath is waning…poison?

  8. What a cute picture of Kimmie Boi there, with his lackeys taking notes as if he was doing something that matters.

    • Well, if they didn’t act like they were interested, they may be breathing their last breath.

      • Right. If I recall he recently had a cabinet member executed for “showing disrespect” by falling asleep in a meeting. We all know how leaders with small man syndrome demand Rspect.

    • Lil Kim: “Where the hell is the ‘ANY’ key?”
      Lackey 1: “I am deepry sorry, Master. I cannot find it on this keyboard.”
      Lackey 2: “None of these keyboards have an ‘ANY’ key!”
      Lil Kim: “Find out who sold us these keyboards! Execute them, and bring their children to me…”

      I think Kim is surfing the porn web and they are just writing down the web address.

  9. We should hit him with an EMP device and blow him back to the stone age.

    • Sounds good.. but keep in mind that would mean going to war against China, they have already warned that any first strike against North Korea and they would step in.

    • Barry Soetoro-Chin | August 24, 2017 at 1:31 pm |

      Without western technology, the ‘Hermit Kingdom’ would still be living in the stone age. The corrupt and lawless Clinton and Obama regimes gave China and North Korea all the tools it needed to wreak havoc on the rest of the world, all for campaign and ‘foundation’ donations.

      Can we ALL agree that everything wrong in the world is ALL the democRATs fault?

      • Gerald Fields | August 25, 2017 at 4:15 am |

        The American people saw who these people were and put them in office any way, for whatever reason. Who is really at fault? The American people. We have to yank our heads out, and have a real grass roots movement.

        • The American people who wanted freebies and handouts from the government. And what they got was to watch their full time jobs be replaced by part time minimum wage “jobs”.
