South Korea’s cyber warfare drills after hack of nuclear power plant

South Korea’s cyber warfare drills after hack of nuclear power plant

While the Sony hack and the later decisions for cancelling the release of the film The Interview have been dominating headlines, a new hack blamed on North Korea is reportedly much more disturbing.
Recently manuals and other documents that were based on the equipment owned by South Korea’s important nuclear plant operator, Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power Co (KHNP) have reportedly been posted online.

An account by the name ‘president of the anti-nuclear reactor group’ seem to have posted nuclear reactor blueprints on the social media pages on Friday which marks the latest in a series of leaks that had started on 15th December. The Government of South Korea has reportedly started mock cyber drills across key government sectors.
