North Korea Accused of Hacking South Korea, US Military Information

SEOUL – A South Korean lawmaker has accused North Korea of having stolen a large amount of classified military documents, said a South Korean lawmaker quoting defense sources on Tuesday.

The hackers accessed the Integrated Defense Documentation Center in September 2016 to steal secret documents, Lee Cheol-hee, a lawmaker from the ruling Democratic Party, said in a statement, Yonhap news agency reported.

The documents, allegedly stolen by North Korea, include 235 gigabytes of classified military information and a plan to decapitate the Kim Jong-un regime, according to Lee.

South Korea’s Defense Ministry, which has not officially confirmed the information, is yet to identify 80 percent of the stolen documents, which might also contain contingency plans for the South’s Special Forces and information on key military facilities and power plants, the statement added.

In May, South Korea’s Defense ministry had accused North Korea of hacking a key military virtual network, although it did not reveal whether sensitive information had been leaked.

Seoul has accused Pyongyang of hacking South Korean government and corporate websites in recent years with the help of its cyber-war team.
