If you’re getting hacked by North Korea, you’ve got a pretty serious systems administration crisis.
A plan to assassinate Kim Jong Un and preparations for a potential nuclear showdown with North Korea were among the trove of South Korean military documents reportedly stolen by Hermit Kingdom hackers.
South Korea’s Defense Ministry did not comment on the alleged hack, which reportedly occurred in September 2016 but was only revealed Tuesday. Rhee Cheol-hee, a lawmaker in South Korea, confirmed the data breach to the BBC. The hack consisted of 235 gigabytes of military documents and about 80 percent of what was stolen hasn’t been identified.
South Korea announced in May a “large amount of data” was stolen during a cyberattack that was possibly orchestrated by Kim Jong Un’s rogue regime. That same month, Yapizon, a South Korean cryptocurrency exchange, announced 3,816 bitcoins — online currency that amounts to about $5.3 million — was taken on April 22. The company did not disclose who it believed to be the culprit, but security firm FireEye noted North Korean hackers were also suspected of targeting online currency providers.
Remember, these are the same people who specialize in exploding cellphones.
If I had to guess, I would say that this entire NK thing is a gigantic Bannonist distraction.
Our country has been unsuccessfully dealing with North Korea for 25 years, giving billions of dollars & getting nothing. Policy didn't work!

Trump didn’t screw us on DACA. He hasn’t really screwed us on anything. I see no reason to believe this isn’t a massive fakeout for the Jewish media.
The whole thing is boring to me.
Much more interested in Vegas.
