North Korea #accused of #stealing #warship #blueprints in #hack

North Korea’s cyber army appears to be going after real weapons.

Hackers tied to Kim Jong Un’s regime stole blueprints and other information about warships and submarines last year when they broke into one of the world’s biggest shipbuilders, according to South Korean lawmaker Kyeong Dae-soo.

Blueprints, shipbuilding technology, weapons systems and test data related to submarines and destroyers were among roughly 60 classified military documents taken from Daewoo Shipbuilding last year, according to Kyeong’s office. It said it was summarizing information it had received from the South Korean Defense Ministry and several military agencies.

The hackers are believed to have accessed some 40,000 documents in all.

Kyeong, a member of the opposition party, learned of the Daewoo hack at an intelligence briefing last week, according to a spokesman for the lawmaker. The South Korean Defense Ministry declined to comment on the matter, but said it is working to strengthen military security.

Daewoo has built several South Korean warships and submarines, all part of the country’s defenses against North Korea.

A Daewoo spokeswoman declined to comment, beyond saying that the company is looking into the matter.

The Daewoo hack is the latest case to come to light suggesting North Korea is using its hacking abilities to try to gain an edge in the tense standoff with the U.S. and its allies over Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program.

Earlier this month, another South Korean lawmaker revealed that North Korean hackers allegedly stole classified military documents from a Defense Ministry database. Among the documents stolen were a South Korea-U.S. wartime operation plan and a document that included procedures to “decapitate” North Korean leadership.

North Korean hackers have also been tied to other high profile cyberattacks, including the massive ransomware attack WannaCry earlier this year, a series of attacks on global banks that came to light last year and the hacking of Sony Pictures in 2014.

The North Korean government has repeatedly denied involvement in international cyberattacks.

Cybersecurity experts say the latest alleged heist shows the risks for government contractors.

“State versus state espionage has moved into the digital realm,” said Bryce Boland, Asia Pacific chief technology officer with cybersecurity firm FireEye.

Companies “involved in state activities like defense are considered fair game by cyber spies,” he said.
