Though there is talk as in the editorials of one newspaper about cybersecurity:
Cybersecurity is a totally new security concept without public and private sector divides, not to mention a critical absence of national borders. The government also must devise a detailed . . . blah, blah, blah
and the Financial Supervisory Service started a special probe the other day into banks and financial institutions to “find out what caused last week’s network paralysis”, one salient and interesting fact remains – especially on the heels of the attack on banks and various institutions in South Korea – that, as of the last quarter of 2012, South Korea led the ranking of countries most infected by malware (57.30 percent of infected PCs).
Maybe it is time for a sea-change in South Korea, regarding how badly personal computers are kept. Attacks like the massive on-going one that has occurred recently against spamhaus could only happen because the average users of computers do not know about security though everyone has a lock on their door. South Korea could at least teach people better safety habits and promote better software that is not so obviously compromised since it is the average user’s infected computer that becomes an unwitting tool at the hacker’s fingertips.
