North Korea operates a cyber warfare unit that seeks to disrupt South
Korean and U.S. military networks and visits U.S. military sites more

Roughly 100 hackers, mostly graduates of a leading military academy in
Pyongyang, work on the team, hacking into South Korean and U.S. computer
networks, downloading classified information and establishing combat
simulations, they said.
“This unit tries to take control of South Korean and U.S. military
information systems by hacking into their computer networks and taking
out classified data. When necessary, they may spread computer viruses to
disrupt the networks,” one of the sources said.
After years of tracking countries that access U.S. military Web sites
and networks, the U.S. military has found that users inside North Korea
logged on most frequently.
