N Korea steals submarine secrets

SEOUL—North Korean hackers are suspected to have broken into a South Korean shipyard and stolen military secrets, in a breach made public less than a month after news of a similar attack in which hackers stole joint U.S.-South Korea war plans.

The attack, revealed by a Seoul lawmaker and corroborated by defense-industry sources, targeted Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. , which makes warships including submarines.

Hackers stole 60 classified documents including blueprints and technical data for submarines and vessels equipped with Aegis weapon systems, said Kyeong Dae-soo, a lawmaker with the opposition Liberty Korea Party.

    If the Daewoo submarines are as good as the Daewoo forklifts , I wouldnt want to go more than 50 feet from shore aboard one.

  4. Sanders says:

    Did they actually “steal” real secrets, or were those “secrets” put in place as part of an elaborate deception?
