North Korean crackers

Digital Chosunilbo (English Edition)::

Pyongyang employs 500-600 hackers who are tasked with hacking into computer networks and disabling enemy command and communication systems. North Korea researches hacking techniques at Mirim Automation College, a five-year school that has been turning out about 100 cyber warfare specialists a year since 1981.

The defense expert said Pyongyang conducts cyber warfare through the Internet servers of many countries including the U.S. and picks up signals from across South Korea from its surveillance posts. Korea's powerful neighbors China, Japan and Russia are also strengthening their information warfare capabilities, he said, citing China’s creation of a 100-man computer virus unit in 1997 and a hacking unit in 1999.
