North Korea hackers steal South Korea war plans

North Korea hackers steal South Korea war plans

Meanwhile, China - North Korea's closest ally and trading partner - expressed alarm at how far the rhetoric on both sides had gone, warning of the increased risk of a "fatal misjudgement"."The worldwide community won't accept North Korea as a nuclear power". This positive process is worth a try", said an editorial in the state mouthpiece Global Times, following yesterday's military exercises."War would be a nightmare for the Korean Peninsula and surrounding regions.

The bilateral training mission between the U.S. B-1B bombers and South Korean F-15K fighter jets on Tuesday night followed a September 23 mission in which US bombers and fighter escorts used pre-dawn hours to fly to the farthest point of the border between North and South Korea by any USA aircraft this century. There are also serious concerns about North Korea's cyberwarfare capabilities, but the USA has been carrying out operations of its own to counter North Korean cyber operations in Northeast Asia and elsewhere. Joined by South Korean F-15K fighters, the B-1Bs simulated air to ground missile firing over the East Sea.

At the end of last month, North Korea's foreign minister Ri Yong-ho said that the U.S. had "declared war" on the authoritarian state and was "right" to shoot down American planes.

Two U.S. Air Force bombers flew over North Korea on Tuesday night, in a demonstration aimed at deterring North Korean military activity on the 72nd anniversary of the regime's ruling party, Reuters reported. Some military experts believe that power supply problems make it hard for North Korea to turn on its air defense radars for 24 hours a day and also that the systems might struggle to effectively track advanced warplanes such as B-1Bs, which have low radar-cross sections.

Impeach Trump? House Dem offers resolution and withdraws it
Steyer, represents a significant boost to efforts on the left to make impeachment a mainstream political consideration. Green's resolution is considered "privileged" by the House, meaning it has to be considered by the end of the week.

The exercises came hours after a South Korean lawmaker claimed North Korean hackers had stolen a large cache of military documents from his country, "including a plan to assassinate North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un, and wartime contingency plans drawn up by the US and South Korea", reports the BBC.

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. 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. North Korea routinely denies responsibility.

Commenting on the news is Chris Doman, security researcher at AlienVault, who is investigating hacking groups in North Korea.
