North Korea's Cyberarmy?

I don't know if this is true or not, but the Financial Times is reporting that North Korea has trained a force of 600 information warriors. Personally, I find it plausible, even credible. It wouldn't take much for any nation-state to produce a crop of skilled attackers, and although this would only be a small part of a coordinated intelligence or offensive campaign, it could be quite a useful one indeed.

On a related note: I can't quite put my finger on why, but this North Korea story somehow puts me in mind of an earlier story about Singapore.
