South Korea claims North hacked nuclear attack response plans

However, North Korean hackers have been suspected to have previously targeted rival South's power grids with wiper malware.

Two supersonic US bombers flew over the Korean Peninsula, officials said Wednesday, in a show of force amid growing tensions with North Korea over its nuclear weapons program. Such flights by the powerful aircraft based in Guam incense the North, which claims they are preparation for war; Pyongyang has threatened to send missiles into the waters around Guam.

"We strongly urge North Korea and the U.S. to stop their bellicose posturing and seriously think about a peaceful solution", it said.

Rhee told CNN on Tuesday that the documents stolen included the South Korea-US wartime operational plan and a document that includes procedures to "decapitate" the North Korean leadership.

However, Trump said he still had confidence in the secretary of state.

"If I had access to the enemy's plans, not only would I know what forces were going to be arrayed against me, I would know where they will be, what weapons they will have, where the command and control nodes will be established - all critical war-fighting information". Defense officials refused to comment Wednesday.

The Guam-based B-1B Lancers were joined by South Korean fighter jets and conducted drills in the seas off both sides of the peninsula, according to South Korea's military.

"Thus far, the suspected North Korean actions are consistent with a desire to demonstrate a deterrent capability rather than a prelude to an unprovoked first-strike in cyberspace; however, North Korea linked actors are bold, have launched multiple cyber attacks created to demonstrate national strength and resolve, and have little concern for potential discovery and attribution of their operations", FireEye researchers said in a blog.

The Windows Mixed Reality 'Halo' Experience Isn't A Game
Ross said it's, "Only scratching the surface of what the potential of a Halo MR experience could be". Adding to this, the Windows Mixed Reality Steam VR Preview will be available later this year.

This comes after US President Donald Trump last night discussed a "range of options" with his national security team to respond to North Korea's recent nuclear tests. Some military experts believe that power supply problems make it hard for North Korea to turn on its air defense radars for 24 hours a day and also that the systems might struggle to effectively track advanced warplanes such as B-1Bs, which have low radar-cross sections.

The U.S. Pacific Air Forces (PACAF) said in a statement this was the first nighttime American B-1 bomber drill conducted with the two U.S. allies in the region.

Documents including wartime contingency plans put together with the USA were stolen from South Korea's defence ministry. In a speech at the United Nations in September, the US President accused the North Korean leader Kim of being "on a suicide mission" - while Kim responded by vowing to "tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire".

In an obvious show of force over the continued missile activities of North Korea, led by Kim Jong Un, the United States military has flown two strategic bombers over the Korean peninsula. Kim is the third generation of his family to rule North Korea.

Lee said that 235 gigabytes of military documents were taken, but the military has yet to identify 80 percent of the documents that were compromised.

It would mark the first such talks since the U.S.

The training was part of a programme of "extended deterrence" against North Korea, it added.
