Hacking claims mushroom

pyongyang: North Korea's Korean Central News Agency released a picture of Kim Jong-un visiting a mushroom farm as South Korea accused its neighbour of mounting cyber attacks last month on the websites of its presidential office and other government agencies.

The attacks took place on the anniversary of the start of the 1950-53 Korean War, which left the peninsula divided. The North has been suspected of previous cyber attacks on the South, including one that paralysed broadcasters and banks. The North said it had also been a victim of hacking.
