American general: North Korean hackers are among the best in the world

24
Hackers from the DPRK can be attributed to one of the best "burglars" in the world, according to American General Vincent Brooks. Reports about it Look with reference to the agency Bloomberg.


American general: North Korean hackers are among the best in the world


Brooks is a candidate for the post of commander of US forces in the Republic of Korea.

“I would not characterize them (North Korean hackers) as the best in the world, but they are among the best and most organized. What they experiment with and what they are capable of shows their courage and skills ",
he said at the senate hearing.

In 2015, unauthorized country hackers threatened the South Korean authorities to disable the country's nuclear power plants if they were not stopped. Then came the hacker attacks on nuclear power plants. Seoul suspected this of its “northern neighbor”.

Earlier, FBI director James Komi stated that his department "is almost certain that North Korea organized an attack against Sony," which resulted in a "leak of information about the company's employees, internal e-mail and information about future films of the corporation."

      “It’s almost certain that North Korea launched an attack against Sony.” Very convenient for the charges! I’m surprised that the videos from YouTube did not show as evidence smile

      It’s that he makes his own straw just in case, and DPRK also has foreign technologies and computers from Alpha Centauri.

    did the right thing to hack Sony Pictures for the "Interview".)))
    In general, "Dark Seoul" destroyed bank servers and the website of the South Caucasian government. They are already legendary laughing I'm only afraid that they can be called "North Korean hackers" with a tremendous stretch) This group can have any nationality. I would call them juchekers)

    Seriously, the general is trying to get more money out of the budget for his hackers.

    Some politicians are not serious, that generals in the USA ...

    Recently, they have made such unfounded statements about and for no reason that you are amazed ...

    I do not mind the fact that the North Koreans have really sensible hackers ... So, by and large, they are in the United States, and in Russia, and China, etc ...

    And to say that the best ... Neither evidence nor facts - absolutely nothing ...

    It seems to me that with their presidential election race, everyone who is closer to the top of the political pillar has already lost their brains ...

    PS And again, in this statement, one hears: give money, but more so that we have better ...

      why are you singing? All from social networks! Everything is serious! Conspirological version: North Korean hackers were merged with North Korean hackers, breaking his personal wheelbarrow and the Pentagon’s server. Samopiar s. And this gullible in stripes and stars (literally - stripes and he has on his trouser legs) grabbed and bonded. laughing

    In my opinion, there is nothing surprising in the fact that this type of Brooks claims. Considering that Brooks is a candidate for the post of commander of American forces in the Republic of Korea (the statement itself looks strange that it refers specifically to the Republic of Korea)It seems that the Americans have already united North and South Korea.
    So, I would not take seriously the statement of the American general, especially considering that the Americans are masters of their word: they want to give and they want to be taken back.

    The fact that in North Korea specialists in the field of IT technologies are very advanced and far from the latest in the world is a fact that does not need confirmation .. the fact that the American general is supposedly sure of something .. well, let him provide evidence, otherwise, as always, "exceptional "make their statements that politicians and the military do not provide any evidence, but at the same time offer everyone to take their word for it ..

      Igor, I think, nevertheless, that the “North Korean hackers” have nothing to do with the UK by localization and nationality. They can be in the next doorway, in Guatemala, in Uryupinsk, or five blocks from the Pentagon laughing In addition, the hackers are vain guys, they need resonance, and no group took responsibility for the attack on Sonya. Pyongyang even suggested a joint investigation, but I think everyone knows the answer of Samantha Powers. By the way, I remind you that the Times generally blamed Russian speakers hackers in hacking Sony:
      The company came to the conclusion that grammatical and other errors (made in the messages of the hackers) were most likely made by the author, whose native language is Russian

    There are specialists of this kind in any country, and in North Korea there may be many unique ones, but they certainly are not born like that.

    (of them (North Korean hackers) as the best in the world, but they are among the best and most organized.)
    And then, following these lamentations, he asked the US Congress and the House of Representatives to increase spending on military needs. How does it look like Krylov's fable "The Crow and the Fox"

    Well, I don’t insist that these hackers are North Korean .. I just wrote that if the American general took the liberty to make such a statement, it would be nice to provide any evidence .. Otherwise, all this blah blah blah .. Well, what about S.K. there are advanced computer experts, this is a fact, if only because they themselves created a local internal computer network, an analogue of the Internet, an operating system for it, etc. And believe me, it says a lot .. But this does not mean at all that they have such hackers .. Then I agree with you ..
