It appears that the recent cyber-attacks against South Korean banks and television networks may not have originated in China, the country's officials said Friday.
"We were careless in our efforts to double-check and triple-check," Korean Communications Commission official Lee Seung-won told reporters Friday. "We will now make announcements only if our evidence is certain," Lee said.
On March 20, Korean television stations KBS, MBC, and YTN, as well as banking institutions Jeju, NongHyup, and Shinhan were infected with a malware which wiped data off hard drives, rending the systems inoperable. The KCC had previously said a Chinese IP address accessed the update management server at the NongHyup bank to distribute the "wiper" malware, which erased data from an estimated 32,000 Windows, Unix, and Linux systems across the six affected organizations.
