Seoul –  North Korean hackers have stolen hundreds of sensitive military documents from South Korea, a local news reported on Wednesday citing government sources.

According to the report, among the documents is a secret contingency mission plan to eliminate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and information on military bases.

The cyber-attack on a South Korean Defence Ministry data centre apparently occurred in September 2016.

According to South Korean politician Rhee Cheol Hee, the ministry did not acknowledge the full extent of the attack.

The local news stated that authorities acknowledged in May that their computer network had been subject to an attack, but claimed the data theft had not been serious.

Report said Rhee alleged that some 80 per cent of the 235 gigabytes of data taken was yet to be identified.

In the past year, South Korea has accused neighbouring North Korea of hacking government websites on multiple occasions.

Pyongyang, however, denied the allegations. (dpa/NAN)
