White House among targets of sweeping cyber attack!

Experts are saying the North Koreans are behind cyber attacks against South Korea and the United States. It looks like they are doing everything in their power to provoke a war. It's scary to think they hit the White House, the Pentagon, and the New York Stock Exchange.

I think President Obama should be devoting a lot more time to the building crisis posed by North Korea. It's nice to go abroad and glad hand some countries, maybe sign a treaty or two, but I think he should be paying more attention to what's happening with the openly belligerent communist regime.

A show down may come sooner than anyone thinks...

Other targets of the attack included the National Security Agency, Homeland Security Department, State Department, the Nasdaq stock market and The Washington Post, according to an early analysis of the malicious software used in the attacks. Many of the organizations appeared to successfully blunt the sustained computer assaults.

The Associated Press obtained the target list from security experts analyzing the attacks. It was not immediately clear who might be responsible or what their motives were. South Korean intelligence officials believe the attacks were carried out by North Korea or pro-Pyongyang forces. Click here to read the rest.
