[Chosun Ilbo, October 6 2008] Police Cracking Down on Malicious Online Messages

The National Police Agency on Sunday decided to investigate and arrest habitual "cyber slanderers" who spread false rumors or post malicious messages online. Police are to mobilize some 900 cyber investigators to crack down on such slanderers for a month until Nov. 5.

They will crack down on the false rumors about individuals or groups, postings of malicious online messages, blackmail through website community bulletin boards, e-mails or text messages, and cyberstalking. They will identify and arrest those who habitually and maliciously spread such messages no matter how minor the damage.
