North Korean Hackers ‘Stole US-South Korea War Plans’

North Korean hackers reportedly stole thousands of military documents detailing war plans of South Korea and the US, including plans to assassinate Kim Jong-un.

South Korean lawmaker Rhee Cheol-hee made the claim on Tuesday, saying the information came from Seoul’s Defense Ministry, Yonhap reports. Rhee sits on the defense committee and is a member of the country’s ruling party.

The South Korean Defense Ministry has not commented on the allegations.
The data, said to be 235 gigabytes of military documents, was stolen from the Defense Integrated Data Center in September 2016. Rhee said 80 percent of the information hadn’t been identified.

“The Ministry of National Defense has yet to find out about the content of 182 gigabytes of the total (stolen) data,” the lawmaker said

The documents reportedly include contingency plans for war, drawn up by the US and South Korea, along with details on power plants and military facilities.

Far more likely that it was hacked by the US and blamed on North Korea.
