North Korea Develops Its Own Operating System Aimed at User Monitoring

South Korea's Science and Technology Policy Institute has released information concerning a homegrown operating system developed by North Korea called Red Star. It appears to be based on Linux and Microsoft code and primarily developed to monitor and limit user activities.

The South Korean report also states:
"North Korea has launched a cyber-war unit that targets sites in South Korea and the US"
but no further details were provided in the BBC article.
