“Usually they are up solid. It is kind of out of the ordinary. This is not like anything I’ve seen before,” said about this Doug Madory, director of internet analysis at Dyn Research. which monitors the state of the Internet around the globe. Just last week the FBI officially stated that it believed North Korea to be behind the recent hack at Sony Pictures, and US President Barack Obama promised to “respond proportionally, and in a place, time and manner that we choose.” It’s difficult to pinpoint the source of a proposed attack which occurred. The National Defense Commission for Pyongyang said in state media late Sunday that the U.S. government was wrong to blame North Korea for the hacking. On Sunday, North Korean state media reported the country’s Policy Department of the National Defense Commission issued a statement saying it is not aware of the country of residence of the hackers.
Marie Harf, deputy spokesperson for the U.S. State Department, declined to comment to journalists about the report that North Korea may have lost Internet access and the possible involving of the U.S. to produce this.
