We saw the news on the Finacial Times, where Lee Cheol-hee, a lawmaker with the ruling Democratic party, said that hackers broke into a defence data center in September and stole sensitive documents about Allies’ North Korean war plans.

According to Mr. Lee, 235 gigabytes of data has been stolen, with 80% of these documents still to be identified.

Special forces plans, key military facilities and power plants, they are all in the stolen documents.

This is happening as US President Donald Trump appears to be escalating tensions between US and North Korea.

This is going to be an interesting week after last week was crowned with the news of Disqus hack.
