North Korea appears to have carried out cyber attacks deep into the South Korean military's Cyber Command in late September.
The Defense Ministry announced on Monday that it investigated the September 23rd hacking incident and found that the intranet service of the Ministry of National Defense was hacked.

The ministry said that North Korea is believed to be behind the attack, citing that the malicious code and an IP address traced back to China were the same ones used by the North previously. 

The latest revelation differs from the ministry's previous statement, in which it said that chances for the intranet service to be hacked was very low as it is had been separated from the server that manages the external Internet. 

The server that suffered the hacking is involved in the security management of some 20-thousand personal computers at the defense ministry as well as the Army, Navy and Air Force units.

The ministry said that some classified military information has been lost.
