[The Chosun Ilbo, July 20 2007] Military Remains Vulnerable to Cyber Attacks

The computer network of the Korean military was attacked by 40 hacking attempts and 949 viruses last year. There are urgent calls for improved security of the military computer network. The Army revealed the computer attacks in a policy report for 2007 at a policy briefing at the Army Hall in Yongsan, Seoul on Thursday afternoon, with Army Chief of Staff Gen. Park Heung-ryul attending. But it did not elaborate on the attacks.
