Sony hack latest: What exactly happened to North Korea’s internet? – Telegraph.co.uk

Posted: Wednesday, December 24, 2014

Even if a cyberattack had caused the shutdown, analysts said, it would largely
be symbolic since only a tiny number of North Koreans are allowed on the
internet.

“There are only about one thousand IP addresses assigned to the entire
country. That compares with hundreds of millions of IP addresses that are
assigned to a country like the United States or most western European
nations,” said Mr Prince.

Though it denies responsibility for the Sony hack, North Korea’s government
has called it a “righteous deed” and made clear its fury over
Sony’s film The Interview, a comedy depicting the assassination of Kim Jong
Un.
