+ - South Korea Backtracked Chinese IP Address in Cyberattack-> 1

Submitted by hackingbear
hackingbear (988354) writes "The suspected cyberattack that struck South Korean banks and media companies this week didn't originate from a Chinese IP address, South Korean officials said Friday, contradicting their previous claim. The Korea Communications Commission said that after "detailed analysis," the IP address used in the attack is the bank's internal IP address which is coincidentally identical a Chinese ISP's address, among the 2^32 address space available."
