North Korea’s connections to the Internet were cut for the second day running Tuesday, according to a US Internet research group that has been tracking the country’s struggle to stay online.
Dyn Research said North Korea’s four online networks, all supplied by Chinese communications firm China Unicom, went offline at 1541 GMT after becoming unstable over the preceding hours.
On Monday, North Korea had been cut off from the Internet for more than nine hours, triggering speculation that the isolated dictatorship had been targeted by a US cyber attack.
Washington has accused North Korea of being behind the hacking of Hollywood studio Sony Pictures, and President Barack Obama has promised a “proportionate response” to the alleged attack.
The cause of the outages in North Korea’s already limited Internet access has not been confirmed, but experts said that the kind of crash it suffered resembles that caused by a “denial of service” attack.

"You say that 'liberal wokeness' turned beliefs that once seemed like into hate crimes," Earhardt said. "What used to be considered common sense that's now a hate crime, in your opinion?"
Trump has shrunk the White House entirely around himself: ‘It is a government of one’
President Donald Trump has cleared out all the constraints in his White House, which he's running much like the Trump Organization.
The president has chased away four national security advisers, three chiefs of staff, three directors of oval office operations and five communications directors -- an unprecedented amount of turnover for a modern president — and finds himself surrounded by compliant staffers and aides, reported Politico.
“It is a government of one in the same way in which the Trump Organization was a company of one,” said one former senior administration official.
