We the people will deny fascist tilting Trump more economic "air rights"

"North Korean hackers targeted US ‘critical infrastructure’ during Trump-Kim summit, says report

Cybersecurity firm McAfee has said a group of North Korean hackers have been actively targeting “critical infrastructure” in an operation that started 18 months ago and likely did not stop during Donald Trump’s recent summit with Kim Jong-un in Vietnam.

In the new report, McAfee said that they found numerous links between the hacking operation and Lazarus, a North Korean group connected to banking hacks. Pyongyang has denied any connection to hacking groups.

To conduct its research, McAfee said it worked with at least one unnamed government.

The attacks on western businesses and governments appeared to flare up in 2017 when the US and North Korea were experiencing a period of particularly tense relations.

At that time, Mr Trump repeatedly mocked and provoked Mr Kim, calling him “little rocket man” in an exchange that escalated while North Koreans tested their missile capabilities."

"A group of North Korean hackers is believed to be actively targeting US businesses and "critical infrastructure," a report released this week by cybersecurity firm McAfee said.

McAfee said it found that the North Korean hackers have tried to infiltrate nearly 80 business in critical sectors like finance, telecommunications, energy and defense around the world. Governments themselves were also targeted, McAfee said.
The hacking is believed to have continued during US President Donald Trump's summit with Kim Jong Un. The largest number of recent attacks primarily target Germany, Turkey and the United Kingdom as well as the United States, McAfee said.
Pyongyang is believed to operate some of the most sophisticated hacking cells in the world, though the North Korean government has long denied any wrongdoing.
McAffee said it partnered with a "government entity" in its investigation, though it declined to reveal which government it worked with."

But not to worry, Trump asked Kim if these reports were true and Kim told him "no way dude!"

Trump of course believes him or its fake news.
South Korea says North Korea is restoring dismantled launch site

South Korean intelligence officials have reportedly seen signs of new activity at North Korean nuclear sites that the country previously pledged to dismantle.

"Yonhap News Agency reported Tuesday that workers could be seen replacing a roof and installing a new door at the Tongchang-ri nuclear launch site, which North Korean officials promised last year to dismantle following an initial summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un, according to Reuters."

Satellite photos show North Korea rebuilding missile launch facility
By LUIS MARTINEZ Mar 5, 2019, 8:02 PM ET

Commercial satellite imagery released by a Washington think tank showed that North Korea has begun a rapid rebuilding of a missile launch site that has been inactive since last summer.

The development comes days after President Donald Trump's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that did not result in a denuclearlization agreement between the two countries.

The satellite images, taken on March 2, 2019, were acquired by the Center for Strategic and The images showed that North Korea has begun to rebuild the launch stand at the location that is the country's main site for long range satellite launches. The site has not been used for the launch of North Korea's intercontinental ballistic missiles, which are fired from mobile launchers. Studies' (CSIS) Beyond Parallel and show new activity at the Sohae (Tongchang-ri) launch facility located in the northwestern part of North Korea.

However, U.S. officials have said that the civilian satellite launches are a cover for military ICBM tests since the technologies are so similar.

Activity at the site includes two construction cranes, as well as several vehicles and supplies laying on the ground next to the vertical engine test stand.

The satellite photos also showed activity at the launch pad's rail-mounted rocket transfer structure.

The covers that typically shroud the site's umbilical launch tower have now been opened to show the launch pad itself.

The renewed activity at the launch site was detected two days after the Trump-Kim summit in Hanoi, Vietnam, that failed to reach an agreement to eliminate North Korea's nuclear weapons program.

The Sohae facility has been inactive since August 2018, when North Korea seemed to be following through with a commitment they made to President Trump at the Singapore summit that Kim would dismantle a launch facility.
CSIS analysts believe the current activity "is deliberate and purposeful" to show North Korea's resolve in the wake of the Hanoi meeting.

Though no agreement was reached in Hanoi, President Trump told reporters that Kim had committed to continue not to conduct ballistic missile or nuclear tests, as he had following the Singapore summit.
