Massive cyberattack on South Korea could have been worse, says Cyber Fellow Junio

Appeared in The Associated Press, March 21, 2013

CISAC Cybersecurity Fellow Timothy Junio spoke with The Associated Press in the wake of a recent cyberattack on South Korea, which paralyzed the country's banks and media organizations. He explained that the attack was less damaging than it should have been because South Korea has developed a cyberattack response policy. Although fingers point to North Korea, which has used Chinese IP addresses to attack South Korea, the originator of the attack remains unknown.
