Hackers from North Korea are reported to have stolen a large cache of military documents from South Korea, including a plan to assassinate North Korea’s bad-to-the-bone leader, Kim Jong-Un, according to defense expert Trevor Loudon on Wednesday.
Russia is always part of the rogue nation process and its timing is curious. TransTeleCom is owned by Russia’s state-run railway company and has fiber optic cables that follow all the country’s main train lines, including all the way up to the North Korean border. Rhee Cheol-hee, a South Korean lawmaker, said the information was from his country’s defense ministry.
The compromised documents include wartime contingency plans drawn up by the US and South Korea. They also include reports to the allies’ senior commanders, according to defense and cybersecurity scholar and author Trevor Loudon.
Loudon is an author, filmmaker and public speaker from Christchurch, New Zealand. For more than quarter-century, Loudon and various team members have researched the radical left, Marxist and Islamic terrorist movements and “their covert influence on mainstream politics.”
Loudon’s thesis is that what is commonly regarded as mainstream political policy is in fact driven and guided by hidden subversive elements. The Democratic party’s consistent defunding of the US military, Obamacare, the Iran Nuclear Deal, normalization of relations with Cuba, Islamic refugee re-settlement, $15 minimum wage, fracking bans, pipeline shutdowns and the push for illegal alien amnesty are all consistent with far-left and Islamist agendas.
Trevor Loudon believes that these forces must be exposed and countered, as America’s continued role as a bastion of freedom is pivotal for the future of western civilization.
Plans for the South’s special forces were reportedly accessed, along with information on significant power plants and military facilities in the South.
Mr. Rhee belongs to South Korea’s ruling party, and sits on its parliament’s defense committee. He said some 235 gigabytes of military documents had been stolen from the Defense Integrated Data Center, and that 80% of them have yet to be identified.
The hack took place in September last year. In May, South Korea said a large amount of data had been stolen and that North Korea may have instigated the cyber attack – but gave no details of what was taken.
North Korea denied the claim. The isolated state is believed to have specially-trained hackers based overseas, including in China.
