Illustration for article titled North Korea Is Partially Back Online

Yesterday, North Korea's internet went dark, with security researchers claiming that internet was down entirely across the entire country. Now, the country's connection seems to be at least partially restored.


A team from Dyn Research tell the BBC that Internet services were partly restored after a total outages of 9 hours and 31 minutes. In particular, websites for the Korean Central News Agency and Rodong Sinmun newspaper were both back online.

However, the same researchers have also warned that the recovery could "be partial and potentially unstable." Certainly, other websites still remain impossible to access.

Analysis yesterday suggested that the outage was a result of a DDoS attack. There's no evidence so far to prove who was behind the attack, though rumors have obviously suggested that the U.S. may be responsible. Either way, one suspects that North Korea isn't laughing the events now unfolding. [BBC]
