Half a dozen North Korean domains offline after apparent server outage

Recurring connectivity issues end in broad disruption across North Korean internet servers

At least half a dozen North Korean websites and email servers dropped off the internet last weekend in a sign of growing instability of the country’s IT infrastructure.

The server outage on Saturday night disrupted access to the websites of Air Koryo, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Naenara web portal, Kim Il Sung University, as well as the email servers for Sili Bank and Star Joint Venture, cybersecurity researcher Junade Ali told NK News.
