A recent hack in South Korea shows us once again how easy it is for cybercriminals to break into secure systems. Hackers recently broke into the systems of South Korean nuclear power plants and released equipment designs and manuals online along with a very scary message.
The technical documents were dumped on social media on Friday using an account dubbed "president of the anti-nuclear reactor group.”
The group responsible for the hack has already released other technical data and employee personal information online. It also warned people to stay away from three specific power plants over the Christmas holiday. The thinly-veiled threat has to be scary for everyone who lives near those areas.
