The suspected North Korea missile launch towards the United States this past 4th of July weekend may have come in the form of a computer virus. Starting July 4th and continuing throughout this Tuesday, various U.S. government websites were assaulted by a cyber attack.
The sites attacked include the Treasury Department, Secret Service, Federal Trade Commission, and the Transportation Department. The Pentagon and the White House were able to easily fight off the attack, revealing how unevenly defended government sites are.
