South Korea hit by hacking attack

According to South Korean lawmaker Rhee Cheol-hee, North Korea stole thousands of military documents from the South in September 2016. The documents supposedly contained US-South Korean war plans against the North, and plans for the assassination of Kim Jong-un.

235 gigabytes of military documents were allegedly stolen from the Defense Integrated Data Center. Rhee said 80% of the information hasn’t been identified yet. “The Ministry of National Defense has yet to find out about the content of 182 gigabytes of the total (stolen) data,” the lawmaker said.

Back in May, the South Korean government said a large amount of data was stolen, and placed blame on North Korea.
