North Korean hackers allegedly probing United States utilities for weaknesses

North Korea hackers steal South Korea war plans

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump met top officials from his National Security team on Tuesday night for a briefing on ways to respond to threats from North Korea, the White House said. "What I am going to tell you is that the [South Korea]-US alliance, that bilateral entity, is there to deal with those types of situation and safeguard against them".

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

"Our country has been unsuccessfully dealing with North Korea for 25 years, giving billions of dollars & getting nothing". Operational Plan 3100 details how to respond to North Korean provocations, Yonhap reports.

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.

The Rohingya, a stateless mostly Muslim ethnic minority, have long faced persecution in Rakhine in northern Myanmar (Burma). The Bangladesh government revealed earlier this week about 5,000 Rohingay Muslims are crossing the border daily.

The trilateral meeting was last held in January in Washington.

"A full-blown war on the Korean Peninsula will be horrific by any stretch of the imagination".

Mattis said the Trump administration was pursuing a diplomatic effort with North Korea, but the USA military can do its part by staying ready. Information on power plants and military facilities in the south also featured among the stolen data, the BBC reports.

"We currently are in a diplomatically-led effort, and how many times did you see in the U.N. Security Council vote unanimously, now twice in a row, to impose stronger sanctions on North Korea?" There were even concerns that North Korea prepped hundreds of computers for a massive attack on its southern neighbor.

And in April, North Korea was linked to attacks on banks in 18 countries after researchers connected hackers to an operation known as "Lazarus", according to a report from Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky. North Korea needs time and proof to believe that abandoning its nuclear programme will contribute to its own political and economic advantage. But there was apparently one mistake spotted by Kaspersky: A connection that briefly came from North Korea. U.S. law enforcement remains suspicious of the firm's ties to the Russian government, but Kaspersky strongly denies Kremlin influence on the company's business.
