South Korea says North hacked online shopping site

South Korea said on Thursday it suspected North Korea of hacking a South Korean online shopping site and stealing personal records of more than 10 million shoppers in what appeared to be the latest case of a cyber attack by the isolated state. The South’s national police agency said it had traced the data breach to North Korea’s spy agency, and it had detected the same IP addresses and codes similar to ones it had used in previous attacks. South Korea has been on heightened alert against cyber attacks by North Korea since the North conducted its fourth nuclear test in January and launched a long-range rocket the next month, triggering new U.N. sanctions.
