SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea's police are investigating what some suspect could be a hacking attack on the country's major broadcasters and a large bank, they said on Wednesday.
Four major broadcasters were affected as well as Shinhan Bank, Part of Shinhan Financial Group, a major financial institution, the police and government said.
Initial speculation centered on a potential hacking attack by North Korea, which has hacked South Korean institutions before, but the police and South Korean government said they could not ascertain the cause of the outages.
