I doubt its from North Korea. It could be rightist elements that have been resurging in South Korea or Japan lately. Remember that "report " in "a" japanese newspaper that said the N Koreans were aiming a missle towards Hawaii What happened top that alarmist rumor that was widely reported? There is no direct internet connection between the USA and N Korea. How are the packets getting thru.. thru China? Over american (Cisco) telecommunications equipment that have NSA backdoors built into them. I really doubt it is the north Koreans. Something else is going on here.
