North Korean Hackers 'Stole' US-South Korean War Plans

North Korean Hackers 'Stole' US-South Korean War Plans”

It involved a pair of B-1B Lancers staging a simulated air-to-ground missile firing with two South Korean F-15K jets over the Sea of Japan which then flew across the southern portion of the Korean peninsula.

The South Korean military added that the regular deployment training is aimed at enhancing extended deterrence capabilities against North Korea.

There is no evidence that the hacking attempts were successful, but FireEye assessed that the targeting of electric utilities could be related to increasing tensions between the USA and North Korea, potentially foreshadowing a disruptive cyberattack.

A spokesman from South Korea's Defense Ministry declined to comment, saying the information is classified.

Speaking to Russia's state-run TASS news agency, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said his country's nuclear programme guaranteed peace and safety in the region and would not be a matter of discussion. "And I can tell you who is going to win".

According to Reuters, North Korea has launched two missiles over Japan and conducted its sixth nuclear test in recent weeks as it fast advances toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the USA mainland.

FireEye experts said that they have yet to observe North Korean hackers using any kind of specialised malware to "compromise or manipulate" industrial control systems.

But Tillerson's sharp statement indicated that the United States, despite its strong alliance with the Kurds, would not offer any.

Senior diplomats of the United States, Japan and South Korea are to meet on October 18 in Seoul to discuss North Korea's evolving nuclear and missile threats, according to the South Korean foreign ministry.

The drills were conducted not long after Lee broke the news about the alleged cyberattacks to reporters. In a speech at the United Nations in September, the US President accused the North Korean leader Kim of being "on a suicide mission" - while Kim responded by vowing to "tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire".

A pre-emptive strike against Pyongyang's leadership would be hard to undertake, but it's widely seen as the most realistic of the limited military options Seoul has to deny a nuclear attack from its rival.

Tensions between the USA and North Korea have intensified in recent months as the Trump administration has struggled to rein in Kim Jong-un's expanding nuclear and ballistic weapons programme. But Kim, the third generation of his family to rule, is officially revered in the North, and any suggestion of removing him from power is taken extremely seriously in Pyongyang. He revealed that around 235 gigabytes of military documents had been stolen from the Defence Integrated Data Centre, and that 80% of them have yet to be identified.

While the attention Wednesday was on air power, upcoming US-South Korea naval exercises could further aggravate tensions.

North Korea has yet to comment on either the bombing drills or the hacking claims.
