S.Korean defense chief: Tighten cybersecurity

From NHK

South Korean defense minister Song Young-moo has instructed the military to boost cybersecurity to prevent hacking attempts by North Korea.

The move comes after South Korea's defense ministry announced in December last year that classified military documents had been stolen as a result of suspected hacking by North Korea.

On Monday, a South Korean lawmaker said the leaked data included a "decapitation strike" plan, aimed at removing the North Korean leadership, including Kim Jong Un, in the event of an emergency on the Korean Peninsula.

Without verifying the lawmaker's claim, the defense ministry said on Thursday that its chief had ordered the military to take further measures to guard against cyber-attacks.

The ministry said the chief noted that, despite the serious security breach, sufficient measures have not been implemented, and that there's growing concern about the nation's security.

The defense ministry says North Korea has a cyber-attack unit with about 6,800 workers.
