South Korean Military Lowers Cyber Alert to Normal Level

Dec. 28 (Bloomberg) -- South Korea’s military lowered its cyber alert level, which was raised after the death of North Korea’s Kim Jong Il, to the normal level, said a spokesman at the joint chiefs of staff, who declined to be named, citing military policy. The level is back to “infocon 5,” said the spokesman, confirming an earlier report by Yonhap news.

South Korea’s military and civilian government raised their cyber alert levels after the death of the North Korean, whose regime has been linked with online attacks against its neighbor.
