Who’s Behind The Internet Outages In North Korea, Anyway?


North Korea blamed the U.S. and called President Obama a “monkey” today when the country’s Internet and mobile network went down for the third time this week. However, it’s still not clear who’s behind the Internet outages.

“Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest,” said the National Defence Commission, North Korea’s ruling body, as reported in Reuters.

Whether North Korea’s Internet was just down or the result of a cyber attack isn’t apparent at the moment. What is clear is that the U.S. government doesn’t want to talk about it. The White House hasn’t commented on the matter and a spokesperson from the State Department told the press in a conference on Tuesday that it would also not be commenting on those reports “in any way.”

The North Korean government has dismissed what it sees as denials of U.S. involvement in the outagaes.
