N. Korea threatens U.S. with cyber war

Threats could differ from standard rhetoric, given recent high profile hacks

North Korea yesterday threatened a cyber -war with the U.S. in response to a recent Reuters report that it was the target of a failed U.S. cyber-attack five years ago.

While the DPRK’s threats of conventional attacks are rarely followed by action, the country is currently the prime suspect in a number of large cyber attacks directed at the U.S. and South Korea.
