“North Korean hackers are believed to have stolen a large amount of classified military documents, including a South Korean and U.S. plan to ‘decapitate’ North Korea’s leadership, according to South Korean news agency Yonhap Tuesday who cited a statement by a ruling party lawmaker. The news agency said that Democratic Party Representative Lee Cheol-hee said that the hackers broke into South Korea’s Defense Integrated Data Center (a center responsible for storing digital military data) in September last year to steal the secret files, with Operational Plans 5015 and 3100 mentioned in the article. Operational Plan 5015 relates to ‘the latest Seoul-Washington scheme to handle an all-out war with Pyongyang, which reportedly contains detailed procedures to ‘decapitate’ the North Korean leadership,’ Yonhap said.” (10/10/17)
