North Korean hackers 'stole US-South Korea war plans'

Bulgaria Donald Trump will Visit the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea

On Tuesday, a South Korean lawmaker said North Korean hackers had reportedly stolen a large cache of military documents from his country, including a wartime contingency plans drawn up by the USA and South Korea.

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.

Operational Plan 5015 is the latest Seoul-Washington protocol for war with Pyongyang, and contains plans to "decapitate" the North Korean leadership.

The North Korean party anniversary passed without any missile launches or nuclear tests, but officials are wary the North could engage in more provocations at any time, especially with China to begin its all-important Communist Party Congress on October 18.

The regime allegedly breached South Korean defense systems late a year ago and stole classified military documents, including allied war plans for a renewed military conflict on the Korean Peninsula and South Korean wartime defense plans.

Clinton appeared at the university as part of a tour promoting her new book " What Happened ", about the 2016 campaign. As for Obama and his post-White House team, however, no official statement or comment has yet to be publicized.

When asked about Rhee's comments by reporters at a daily press briefing on Tuesday, a spokesman from South Korea's Defense Ministry declined to comment, saying the information is classified.

Late last month the USA flew B-1Bs over worldwide waters close to North Korea's east coast.

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

However, Trump said he still had confidence in the secretary of state.

Pyongyang has denied responsibility for the cyberattacks in its state media, criticising Seoul for "fabricating" claims about online attacks.

Google discovered Russian-bought ads on YouTube and Gmail
The Post reported that Google used data from Twitter to link Russian Twitter accounts with those who had purchased the Google ads. Twitter has also said that it suspended 201 accounts associated with the Internet Research Agency.

The North's missile and nuclear capabilities have made significant progress under Kim, who on Saturday told party officials that the country's atomic weapons were a "treasured sword" to protect it from aggression.

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

Lee said that 235 gigabytes of military documents were taken, but the military has yet to identify 80 percent of the documents that were compromised.

The mission was the latest show of force to North Korea after its long-range intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) tests and hydrogen bomb test that have ratcheted tensions with the United States. Other stolen data included contingency plans for South Korean special forces and information on military facilities and power plants, he said.

The U.S. has been pursuing a strategy of "maximum pressure" on North Korea, applying diplomatic and economic pressure multilaterally and unilaterally.
