First of all...I don't believe there is a "SEA"...ju st a bunch of criminal hackers. An assault by true government sponsors, i.e.the Chinese attacks, would not reveal itself in order to show deniability. Second, AP and the BBC weather attacks shows that it can not breach USA and U.K. governmental security barriers. Third, what they did looks childish and Juvenile...something a computer nerd would think funny!!!
