IP-address registered in China, in fact belongs to the South Korean bank.

According to Reuters, cyber attacks committed on March 20 on the banks and telecommunications companies in South Korea, were not committed to the Chinese IP-address. Earlier in the investigation revealed that all the attacks occurred with a Chinese IP-address. However, Seoul accused of committing attacks North Korea.

Officials in South Korea reported that North Korean hackers in the past have used servers located in China. However, South Korean experts agency Korea Communications Commission said that the detected IP-address is a virtual IP-address for the internal bank NongHyup Bank, subjected to attack.
