South Korea is internally hacked

Η South Korea and in particular its military network was attacked by hackers of North Korea who, breaking the intranet, managed to extract many military secrets. According to a statement from the Ministry of National Defense, the incident took place on 23 September and the focus of the attack was the state-of-the-art information systems.South Korea South Korea

Although it has not yet been established who is behind the attacks, rumors argue that violations have much in common with those that have been caused in the past by their neighbors. The South Korean Army's research team has discovered that some military data have leaked. However, as research is under way, they do not allow more information to be leaked.

«We can not publish more information about the attack yet because we are afraid that we will give surplus to North Korea."The army spokesman said.

They found that the attack was launched by Chinese servers, but fortunately they did not gain access to military data on Korean business relations with other countries.

It seems that malware has been installed in the army systems since August, which makes us wonder why hackers are waiting until September to complete the attack. The ministry had ordered the infected computers not to be connected to the internet but that was not enough to stop them hackers who have finally managed to gain remote access to the systems.

At present, South Korea advises military officers when they connect to the internet to delete the data on the spot in order to avoid theft from hackers.South Korea South Korea
