7 South Korean Web sites under renewed attack

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - A state official says seven South
Korean Web sites are under renewed cyber attack.
Ku Kyo-young from the state-run Korea Communications Commission
said the latest assault began around 6:30 p.m. (0930 GMT, 5:30 a.m.
EDT ) Thursday.
He said one of the affected sites belongs to the government, the
other six are private. Some are still working normally despite the
attacks.
Earlier Thursday, the country's leading computer security
company warned that another wave of cyber attacks was expected
later in the day.
South Korea's spy agency suspects North Korea is behind the
series of attacks that have triggered Web site outages in South
Korea and the United States.
