The military's intranet is vulnerable to attacks by North Korean 
hackers, a lawmaker from a minor party said yesterday.

Rep. Lee Jin-sam of the minor conservative Liberty Forward Party said, 
"North Korean hackers attacked our military's intranet in the Ulchi 
Freedom Guardian in August after the Defense Security Command warned 
troops of hacker attacks in advance."

"As a result, part of major intranets of the Air Force and Navy were 
frozen for several hours, and important data, including more than 1,000 
cases of intelligence and grade 2 classified data, were leaked."

Lee was speaking at the annual parliamentary inspection of the Defense 
Ministry and the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
