Ex-British foreign minister thinks US hacked North Korea missile
NYPOST by Mark Morre --
A former British foreign minister said on Sunday he has a theory why a North Korea missile exploded seconds after launch – a US cyber attack downed it.
“It could have failed because the system is not competent enough to make it work, but there is a very strong belief that the US – through cyber methods – has been successful on several occasions in interrupting these sorts of tests and making them fail,” Malcolm Rifkind told the BBC.
The repressive regime of Kim Jong-un tested a non-nuclear weapon on Sunday but it exploded almost immediately. It came a day after North Korea, in an annual show of force, paraded missiles and rocket launchers through the streets of Pyongyang to mark the 105th birthday of Kim Il-sung, the country’s founder.
