Global Post reports that “the [South Korean] defense ministry said Tuesday it has launched a raid on the cyber warfare command’s headquarters and senior commanders to look into whether the military was involved in an alleged smear campaign during last year’s presidential election.”

“Four officials at the ministry’s Cyber Warfare Command have been under an internal investigation for a similar online smear campaign by the state spy agency against the main opposition Democratic Party’s candidate, Moon Jae-in, ahead of the election last December.”
