Both the BBC and Yahoo news are reporting that US and South Korean government websites have been under attack from a significant botnet DDOS.

A lot of finger pointing at North Korea is going on, though at the moment no one seems to be reporting definite perpetrators.

It's interesting to read that this attack started with US sites. The first I heard about it was when some South Korean sites were attacked and they immediately blamed the North. I guess the attacks on the US sites were being ignored or simply not being reported in the media.
