The official website of South Korean Air Force (airforce.mil.kr) was shut down for two weeks after a massive cyber attack hit its server.
On 12th May 2016, the air force website was found infected with a malicious code forcing the authorities to shut down the site from public view while running a temporary site for public information. The same day the military were informed that some suspicious emails were sent to local defence contractors by a supposed Defence Acquisition Program Administration official. It is quite possible that the emails either contained a malware or it was simply a phishing scam stealing the login credentials of local defence contractors.
