North Korea Linked To Digital Attacks On Global Banks

What do they mean they "think" North Korea is behind a string of attempted cyber-bank robberies? How hard is it to find out? North Korea only has one internet connection in the whole country. wink

In three recent attacks on banks, researchers working for the digital security firm Symantec said, the thieves deployed a rare piece of code that had been seen in only two previous cases: the hacking attack at Sony Pictures in December 2014 and attacks on banks and media companies in South Korea in 2013. Government officials in the United States and South Korea have blamed those attacks on North Korea, though they have not provided independent verification.
