Based on a recent article from Wired, the American hacker claimed he was targeted by a “government-backed entity based in North Korea”.

That hacking campaign was picked up by Google’s Threat Analysis Team (TAG).

It is thought that North Korean hackers may have tried to steal research and tools from the US.

PX4 said he was contacted by the FBI after he was hacked.

He is unhappy with the government’s response and says he needs to deal with his own problems.

He claimed to have exploited vulnerabilities in North Korea’s online systems and carried out a “denial of service” attack on critical servers and routers.

An attack like this would be enough to take the country’s vulnerable internet offline and it is said to remove all North Korean websites from the internet.

That blackout lasted about six hours.

It all happened last week before PX4 decided to give an explanation.

Wired says its viewed data from PX4 and believes its claims.

Records from the uptime service Pingdom show that at some point during the P4x hack, almost every North Korean website crashed.

“(Some of them still exist, like the news site Uriminzokkiri.com, which is based outside the country.)

“Junade Ali, a cybersecurity researcher who tracks North Korea’s internet, said he has begun to observe what appear to be mysterious, large-scale attacks on the country’s internet starting from two weeks ago and since then have been closely monitoring the attacks without knowing who they were. bring them out.”

A lot of people in North Korea don’t have access to the Internet so it’s possible that most of his country was unaware of the outage.

PX4 said he wants to influence the people as little as possible but send a message to the North Korean government.
