Korean lawmaker says North Korea hacked war plans

There are also serious concerns about North Korea's cyberwarfare capabilities, but the US has been carrying out operations of its own to counter North Korean cyber operations in Northeast Asia and elsewhere.

North Korea did not conduct any launches or tests on Tuesday's anniversary.

Reports of reconnaissance on United States utilities follow earlier reports alleging DPRK spies stole a large cache of military documents from South Korea, including a plan to assassinate North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-un.

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 a year ago, citing information from unnamed South Korean defence officials.

This comes after US President Donald Trump last night discussed a "range of options" with his national security team to respond to North Korea's recent nuclear tests.

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.

More recently, Seoul accused North Korea of having hacked, stolen and leaked sensitive military secrets and Seoul-Washington war plans.

France top the standings, but still have a long way to go, as the top four teams in the group have a shot at qualification. In Group H, Greece moved above Bosnia and Herzegovina into second place by rallying to defeat Cyprus 2-1.

"I'm not going to address the specifics of that discussion but what I will tell you is that it is a ROK-US alliance commitment to make sure that they safeguard operations and plans", he added.

"FireEye devices detected and stopped spear phishing emails sent on September 22, 2017, to U.S. electric companies by known cyber threat actors likely affiliated with the North Korean government", the infosec outfit reported on Tuesday.

These plans had likely not been classified properly but defence ministry officials told Rhee the hacked documents were not of top importance, he said.

"There is an urgent need for the military to change and update parts that were stolen by North Korea", Lee said.

North Korea's nuclear weapons program has become the most urgent national security issue during the Trump presidency.

"Our country has been unsuccessfully dealing with North Korea for 25 years, giving billions of dollars & getting nothing".

US Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley made clear Monday what a bind the US is in when it comes to solving the challenge of North Korea's nuclear and missile programs, stating there are "no risk-free options" but said there is also not an "indefinite amount of time" to solve the crisis. North Korea needs time and proof to believe that abandoning its nuclear programme will contribute to its own political and economic advantage.
