North Korean Hackers 'Stole' US-South Korean War Plans

"South Korean and US air forces showed off the allies' resolve for strong retaliation against North Korea's nuclear and missile threats", the JCS said in a statement carried by local news agency Yonhap. As part of the exercise, two American B-1 bombers and South Korean and Japanese fighter jets flew over the Korean Peninsula.

South Korean and USA government officials "have been raising their guard against more North Korean provocations with the approach of the 72nd anniversary of the founding of North Korea's ruling party", says Reuters. Pyongyang has historically conducted tests on noteworthy anniversaries and holidays such as a missile test on July 4 for America's Independence Day.

Hackers believed to be from North Korea are casing out U.S. electric companies in preparation for a possible cyber attack - so says security firm FireEye.

The exercise showed the "strong ability of the alliance against the North Korean nuclear missile threat", the South Korean air force said.

They staged a simulated air-to-ground missile firing drill with two F-15K fighters over the East Sea and flew across the peninsula, Yonhap news agency reported.

Robert Lee, a cybersecurity expert who consults with the industry, told NBC News that "any targeting of infrastructure by a foreign power is a concerning thing", but that North Korea and other adversaries "are far from being able to disrupt the electric grid".

Meanwhile, China - North Korea's closest ally and trading partner - expressed alarm at how far the rhetoric on both sides had gone, warning of the increased risk of a "fatal misjudgement"."The global community won't accept North Korea as a nuclear power".

Documents including wartime contingency plans put together with the United States were stolen from South Korea's defence ministry.

North Korea has said Trump is "on a suicide mission" against it, with the country's foreign minister calling the US President "mentally deranged" in a speech at the United Nations last month.

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.

Trump, meeting with members of his national security team, discussed "a range of options to respond to any form of North Korean aggression or, if necessary, to prevent North Korea from threatening the United States and its allies with nuclear weapons", according to a statement from White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

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.

If confirmed, such a hack would be a major blow for South Korea at a time when its relations with North Korea are at a low point.
