North Korea has as many as 30,000 electronic warfare specialists as part 
of the elite core of the North`s military, Fox News said Tuesday.

Quoting U.S. and South Korean intelligence, the U.S. network said 
Washington and Seoul believe that the U.S. CIA can match Pyongyang`s 
capability in cyber warfare.

Fox quoted North Korean leader Kim Jong Il as telling his military 
several years ago, “Modern war is electronic warfare. Victory or defeat 
in a modern war depends on how to carry out electronic warfare.” He has 
since made cyber warfare a top albeit secret priority of his paranoid 
regime, it added.

Among the most frequent visitors to U.S. military websites are computers 
traced to North Korea, according to the U.S. Defense Department. Much 
like the clandestine nuclear program run by the rogue state, its cyber 
warfare capability is shrouded in secrecy.
