South Korea is planning to develop cyber-attack tools in a bid to damage North Korean nuclear facilities.
The defence ministry of South Korea seeks developing weapons on the model of the software ‘Stuxnet,’ which was designed to attack Iran’s nuclear enrichment plants.
According to the country’s news agency, the ministry has reported its plan to the government last week.
The plan of cyber-attack tools for physically damaging North’s nuclear plants is the second phase of a strategy that commenced in 2010.
The news agency quoted a senior ministry official saying on the second phase’s establishment, the cybercommand will carry out comprehensive cyberwarfare missions,”
