Magical North Korean Ninja hackers...

From the Chosun:
A [South Korean] defense expert warned Thursday that North Korea’s small army of computer hackers has capacity equal that of the U.S. CIA. He said North Korea also operates some 39 bugging and surveillance posts from where it eavesdrops on communication and signals from all across South Korea.
I don't doubt much of his conclusions. Cyber security is pretty lax in the US, but getting better all the time, although his assertion that the CIA is our premiere hacking arm of the US government just sounds like so much movie fluff. I'm sure the NSA, DIA, et. al. have much more capacity for information warfare attack than the CIA.
