  • North Korea Seizes South Korean Assets

"Thus far, the suspected North Korean actions are consistent with a desire to demonstrate a deterrent capability rather than a prelude to an unprovoked first-strike in cyberspace; however, North Korea linked actors are bold, have launched multiple cyber attacks created to demonstrate national strength and resolve, and have little concern for potential discovery and attribution of their operations", FireEye researchers said in a blog.

"The plan is fundamental to conducting a war operation, and leakage of even a small part of it is very critical", Rhee Cheol-hee, of the ruling Democratic Party, told Bloomberg.

A South Korean lawmaker says North Korean hackers stole highly classified military documents that include U.S.

"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.

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

"While I would not characterize them as the best in the world, they are among the best in the world and the best organized", Army Gen. Vincent Brooks, commander of U.S. Forces Korea, told the Senate previous year. Rhee said 80 percent of the information hadn't been identified.


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

"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.

The Pentagon also declined to comment specifically on reports of the potential breach, but spokesman Col. Robert Manning said on Tuesday that the United States is "confident in the security of our operations plans and our ability to deal with any threat from North Korea".

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.

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

The stolen money was likely used to help advance North Korea's development of nuclear weapons, Anthony Ruggiero, a senior fellow for Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told CNN at the time.
