"Through the practice this time, South Korean and US Air Forces showed off the allies resolve for strong retaliation against North Korea's nuclear and missile threats", it said. 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.

In the latest show of force against North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, American bombers and Japanese and South Korean fighter jets flew over the Korean Peninsula in an overnight drill.

The two B-1B bombers were accompanied by two F-15K fighters from the South Korean military after leaving their base in Guam, the South's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a news release.

"FireEye devices detected and stopped spear phishing emails sent on September 22, 2017, to U.S. electric companies by known cyber threat actors likely affiliated with the North Korean government", the infosec outfit reported on Tuesday.

The Defense Ministry after an investigation said in May that North Korea was likely behind the hacking of the Defense Integrated Data Center in September previous year, but had refused to confirm media speculation that the decapitation strike plan was compromised.

The drills were conducted not long after Lee broke the news about the alleged cyberattacks to reporters.

Two supersonic U.S. bombers have flown over the Korean peninsula in a "show of force" despite Kim Jong-Un's threats to shoot them down.

A pre-emptive strike against Pyongyang's leadership would be hard to undertake, but it's widely seen as the most realistic of the limited military options Seoul has to deny a nuclear attack from its rival.

North Korea's nuclear weapons program has become the most urgent national security issue during the Trump presidency.

About 235 gigabytes worth of military data was stolen by the hackers, Rhee said. Rhee said 80 percent of the information hadn't been identified.

The report said Seoul has been hit by a number of cyber attacks in recent years trying to breach government and corporate websites and has since worked to bolster its cyber defense systems.

More recently, Seoul accused North Korea of having hacked, stolen and leaked sensitive military secrets and Seoul-Washington war plans.

The U.S. has been pursuing a strategy of "maximum pressure" on North Korea, applying diplomatic and economic pressure multilaterally and unilaterally.
