Korean lawmaker says North Korea hacked war plans

North Korea Seizes South Korean Assets

In an obvious show of force over the continued missile activities of North Korea, led by Kim Jong Un, the U.S. military has flown two strategic bombers over the Korean peninsula.

"Flying and training at night with our allies in a safe, effective manner is an important capability shared between the US, Japan and the Republic of Korea and hones the tactical prowess of each nations' aviators", Major Patrick Applegate said in a statement. Operational Plan 3100 details how to respond to North Korean provocations, Yonhap reports.

Democratic Party representative Rhee Cheol-hee said in radio appearances on Wednesday that 235 gigabytes of military documents were taken from the Defense Integrated Data Center in September past year, citing information from unnamed South Korean defence officials. The South Korean defence ministry has so far refused to comment on the breach, which reportedly dates back to last September.

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

While North Korea was not able to hack USA power companies, there are concerns among some of observers that the regime may attempt to damage the power grid by detonating a nuclear device at a high altitude above the US, triggering an electromagnetic pulse (EMP).

The U.S. military conducted another show of force to North Korea on Wednesday as long-range B-1 bombers flew a nighttime mission over the Sea of Japan accompanied by Japanese and South Korean fighter aircraft.

Vice Foreign Minister Lim Sung-nam will hold strategic talks with visiting U.S. Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan on October 18 in Seoul, according to Seoul's foreign ministry.

In a pair of tweets sent Saturday afternoon, Trump said past agreements with North Korea have all been violated.

Rhee said 80 percent of the information hadn't been identified.

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump met top officials from his National Security team on Tuesday night for a briefing on ways to respond to threats from North Korea, the White House said.

There is no evidence that the attacks were successful, and cybersecurity experts believe that North Korea lacks the ability to disrupt the power grid.
