South Korea claims North hacked nuclear attack response plans

South Korea claims North hacked nuclear attack response plans

North Korea hackers have reportedly stolen a large number of military wars documents from South Korea, including a plan to assassinate the country's dictator, Kim Jong-un.

The air-to-ground missile maneuvers near the South Korean coast were intentionally scheduled for North Korea's communist party's anniversary.

The briefing by his defence secretary James Mattis and top military officer General Joseph Dunford "focused on a range of options to respond to any form of North Korean aggression or, if necessary, to prevent North Korea from threatening the United States and its allies with nuclear weapons", according to a brief statement from the White House.

"South Korean and USA air forces showed off the allies' resolve for strong retaliation against North Korea's nuclear and missile threats", the JCS said in a statement carried by local news agency Yonhap. Defence officials refused to comment on Wednesday.

This year, North Korea tested an intercontinental ballistic missile that could potentially reach the USA mainland, and the US intelligence community assesses it has the technology to miniaturize a nuclear warhead atop it.

"There is an urgent need for the military to change and update parts that were stolen by North Korea", Lee said.

An unusually aggressive approach to the North by Trump, which has included rhetoric hinting at United States strikes and threatening the destruction of North Korea's leadership, has some South Koreans fearful that war is closer than at any time since the Korean War ended in a shaky ceasefire in 1953.

"Ladies and gentlemen, it is right now a diplomatically-led, economically sanction-buttressed effort to try to turn North Korea off this path", he said.

Pyongyang has denied responsibility for the cyberattacks in its state media, criticising Seoul for "fabricating" claims about online attacks.

About 235 gigabytes worth of military data was stolen by the hackers, Rhee said.

Despite the worldwide sanctions, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un continues to develop nuclear weapons and advance his nation's ballistic missile program.

Hackers linked to North Korea reportedly targeted US electric power companies, according to a leading cybersecurity firm.

The report said Seoul has been hit by a number of cyber attacks in recent years trying to breach government and corporate websites and has since worked to bolster its cyber defense systems.

"Our country has been unsuccessfully dealing with North Korea for 25 years, giving billions of dollars & getting nothing".
