Cyber War "Northern Korea annually trains about hundred hackers to stand a better chance in cyber-war against South Korea,"- Reuters informs referring to the Seoul's Defense Security Command Song Young-keun.

According to Young-keun, South Korea has created a complex Internet-infrastructure, and this fact makes it vulnerable for cyber-attacks. On the other hand, North-Korean militaries are going to develop effective security system, which will not allow hackers from South Korea to penetrate into Internet-secrets of communists.

As Reuters notes, 70 percent of houses in South Korea are equipped with the Internet. It's the first time when Internet-resources of Southern Korea are exposed to really serious threat on the part of northern neighbor.
