Korean lawmaker says N. Korea hacked war plans

Korean lawmaker says N. Korea hacked war plans

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

However, North Korean hackers have been suspected to have previously targeted rival South's power grids with wiper malware. It involved a pair of B-1B Lancers staging a simulated air-to-ground missile firing with two South Korean F-15K jets over the Sea of Japan which then flew across the southern portion of the Korean peninsula.

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

Outside governments and worldwide human rights organizations say Kim rules as a tyrant over a largely malnourished and abused population while enjoying a luxurious lifestyle backed up by a weapons program almost advanced enough to viably target the US mainland with nuclear-tipped missiles.

North Korea's foreign minister has said Donald Trump "has lit the wick of a war", according to a Russian state news agency.

Two U.S. B-1 bombers carried out a training exercise on Tuesday with Japanese and South Korean military aircraft in the vicinity of the Sea of Japan, the U.S. military said, amid growing tension over North Korea's missile and nuclear programs.

During Tuesday's drills, the USA bombers, which flew from the Andersen Air Force Base in Guam, staged simulated air-to-ground missile striking drills off the peninsula's east coast before flying across the country accompanied by the two South Korean fighters. Lee, who didn't specify his sources, said the plans allegedly stolen by the North include operations for tracking the movement of the North's leadership, isolating their hideouts, executing air assaults and follow-up actions for securing and eliminating targets, which would obviously include North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Kim is the third generation of his family to rule North Korea.

Suspicions that Pyongyang may have stolen intel from South Korea will do nothing to de-escalate tensions with the USA, which are already at a 50-year high following the North's rocket tests.

Russia's TASS news agency quoted North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho as saying: "With his bellicose and insane statement at the United Nations, Trump, you can say, has lit the wick of a war against us".

Information on South Korea's special forces was also reportedly accessed, as well as important details on significant power plants and military facilities in the South.

"They likely remain committed to pursuing targets in the energy sector, especially in South Korea and among the USA and its allies, as a means of deterring potential war or sowing disorder during a time of armed conflict".

While US Secretary of Defense James Mattis reiterated this week that diplomacy along with global economic sanctions would remain the leading element of US strategy towards blunting North Korea, military options were being prepared.
