'War Thirsty' US President And His 'Gangster-Like Moves' Seeking Domination: North Korea

War Thirsty US President And His'Gangster-Like Moves Seeking Domination North Korea

Tension between the United States and the secretive country has been escalating in recent months.

In the midst of these developments, Donald Trump, the US President recently told that "only one thing will work" with Kim Jong-Un.

South Korea appears to be adopting high-tech options in its efforts to combat current and future threats from rival North Korea.

A South Korean lawmaker stated Tuesday that North Korean hackers stole many intelligence and military documents from the defense ministry's data center. It is doing so by collaborating with cyber criminals who may not be based in North Korea but have the tools in place to conduct massive cyber warfare on Britain's banks.

The hackers apparently accessed plans for South Korean special forces, information about power plants and military facilities, and wartime contingency plans crafted jointly by the USA and South Korea.

South Korean and US military officials have been closely monitoring North Korea following a threat by the regime to conduct a new ballistic missile test.

A maritime database that monitors naval vessels identified the banned vessels as the Petrel 8, which is registered in Comoros; the Hao Fan 6, which sails under the flag of Saint Kitts and Nevis; and North Korea's Tong San 2.

Investigators later learned that the hackers first infiltrated the network of a company providing a computer vaccine service to the ministry's computer network in 2015.

The South's Yonhap news agency quoted Mr Lee as saying 235 gigabytes of military documents were taken. They did not reveal what data had been taken at the time. Defense officials refused to comment when reached by other media.

Pyongyang's hackers allegedly stole the military secrets between August and September a year ago.

News of the hack is likely to further fuel tensions between the USA and North Korea, as leaders of the two countries have been exchanging insults over Pyongyang's recent missile tests.

This hack was originally reported last May, but this is the first time details of what was stolen have emerged.

He also praised Mr. Trump's response to North Korea saying that USA action was necessary after years of diplomacy.

Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have been engaged in an increasingly bellicose exchange of rhetoric, with Trump suggesting the military option was the only way to halt the North's missile and nuclear programmes.

Trump is widely expected to send a message to North Korea - either verbally or "kinetically" - when he makes the foreign visit. Political experts believe that the US President was hinting the possibility of a military action against North Korea if the country continues its blind nuclear ambitions.
