S Korean banks, broadcasters hacked

A cyber-attack on South Korean banks and broadcasters came from an internet address in China, South Korean officials say, but the identity of those behind it cannot be confirmed.The telecoms regulator said hackers used a Chinese address to plant a malicious code that hit networks at six organisations on Wednesday.
Officials said they were continuing to investigate the origins of the attack.
North Korea has been blamed for previous attacks in 2009 and 2011.
“Unidentified hackers used a Chinese IP address to contact servers of the six affected organisations and plant the malware which attacked their computers,” said Park Jae-moon of South Korea`s communications regulator.
“At this stage, we`re still making our best efforts to trace the origin of attacks, keeping all kinds of possibilities open,” he said.
