Three South Korean television networks and two major banks were recently hacked prompting the country’s Army to raise its alert level, according to a Reuters article.
An investigation into the attacks on TV networks YTN, MBC and KBS and the Shinhan and NongJyup banks is still underway.
“We are now assessing the situation. This incident is pretty massive and will take a few days to collect evidence,” a police official told Reuters.
According to the article, the attack deleted files from the TV stations and the banks’ servers.
The local police and government officials declined to comment on allegations that North Korea is behind the attack.
The TV stations have yet to get their systems back but the banks have restored operations.
