Computer viruses in South Korea

South Korea was the theatre of cyberattacks: a virus corrupted the Blue House, the ministry of foreign affairs, South Korea's largest bank, an online auction house, and a few US and ROK military installations.
So far, North Korea was spared the blame. It was a year or so before, was it 2009?, but the story lost interest when the hacking was traced to Europe, the US, and within South Korea.
This time, the damange was 'manageable'?
Unnamed sources lay the blame at the doorstep of South Korea. Look for the rising discontent among the elite and the unfulfilled rising expectations of its youth and its middle class.
