+ - South Korean social network hacked, China blamed->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Hackers broke into the hugely popular South Korean websites Nate and Cyworld earlier this week, and stole personal information about 35 million social networking users.

Names, email addresses, phone numbers and resident registration numbers of users are said to have been compromised in the attack which authorities are blaming on Chinese hackers.

Cyworld is a phenomenon in South Korea with an astonishing 35 million users — a staggering figure when you consider the the population is just 49 million people."
