South Korea Reveals Hacking Attack

A cyber alert has been issued by South Korea after government websites were allegedly hacked.

The presidential office site was one of a number said to have been targeted in a co-ordinated attack by unidentified hackers.

A Science Ministry statement read: "The government can confirm a cyber attack by unidentified hackers that shut down several sites including the Blue House (the presidential office)."

Messages hailing North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and claiming that hacking group Anonymous was responsible appeared on the targeted websites.

But Anonymous denied involvement on its Twitter feed.
