According to Yonhap News, Kim Jin-pyo [a lawmaker from the country’s main opposition party] said in an interview: “A malicious code has been identified and it seems to have taken advantage of the vulnerability of the routing server,” adding that “in a cautious measure, the server has been separated from the network”.
Kim said that chances are “very low” that the latest hacking led to a leak of confidential information given that the military’s intranet is not connected to the server, the report adds.
A probe is underway to uncover how the malware code accessed the country’s military cyber command.
Considering the growing tension between South and North Korea, it won’t be a surprise if Kim Jong Un’s government is finally confirmed to be the attacker.
Kim’s government suffered same fate when its nuclear plant and subway was hijacked last year–an attack it blamed on the South.
