NK does not need to nuke a county; it simply needs to target the unprotected and undefended transpacific communications pipelines. When 21st society cannot access its digital money to pay for food, fuel etc it will turn nasty very quickly and those nations who rely heavily on technology will be severely damaged. Japan will not escape this even though at consumer level it is a cash society, that cash is digital at some point, from the employers bank account to the employees it is digital.

BTW SBI recovered hours before Rakuten... So I wonder if an external cause - other than a NK hack attack - was really behind the disruption, or should we be looking at NTT's control over the communications market .

Hardware failure ? I could still access the internet, but could not login to rakuten securities nor SBI for some time.... So something pretty weird happened. Overseas issue - a certificate issuing authority... there's a lot of $ at stake here, so something needs to be done, and those causing the problem be held to account, likewise something needs to be done in order to avoid a future occurrence.

The cause is caused by the symptom, makes total sense!

Modern ships crashing aimlessly into huge tankers

Internet going haywire.

Are driverless cars and robots really the safe way to go?
