"Sunshine High in the mid thirties. It's w N Y. C. Welcome back to news on the face of the daughter of Dubai's ruler, Princess Latifah. Next first those state media in South Korea say the country's spy agency has uncovered attempts by North Korea to hack the computer system off the U. S pharmaceutical company Pfizer. Steel Corona virus vaccine information. Short time ago I spoke to our correspondent in Seoul, Laura. Bigger on, I began by asking her what she was able to confirm. It seems that North Korea has tried Tol hack into the company's making at Corona virus, drugs and Corona virus vaccines. In the briefing, the company Fizer was mentioned. But it also mentioned that hacking attempts have been made on other companies, including here in South Korea, where they're making At their own s South Korean vaccine. They said that we've managed to foil attempts here in South Korea for North Korean hackers to break into their pharmaceutical companies. But I think when it comes to this kind of report, it almost confirms a number or reports that we've heard over the last few months. That North Korean hackers have been targeting some of the biggest a drug makers, some of the biggest pharmaceutical companies who are involved in either coronavirus vaccines or a coronavirus kind of treatments. So at the moment, it's confirmed that nothing was actually stolen. Is that right that the hack was not successful? According to those who were in the briefing, the N S has said it has foiled attempts on South Korean pharmaceutical companies. They're unsure whether or not it has been successful in any other company, but on we have tried to kind of speak to Fizer and others. But no company has come forward to say that a hack has been successful. North Korea uses a number off ways to try to hack into companies, including fishing or peoples linked in accounts or other things who work within the company to try to then break into the computer systems. They use quite sophisticated methods on the are kind of well trained hackers. But we're not sure whether any of these attempts have been successful at this stage. It's curious, isn't it? Because North Korea's closed its border it claims it has no coronavirus cases. Does force one to think. Well, what is it that they're after? Why do they want to hack into these systems? The vaccine related information. Well, it could be that they're trying to sell the stolen data rather than trying to kind of develop little in vaccine. That's according to some experts. We've spoken to here in Seoul over the last few years as most people will know North Korea's been subject to strict economic sanctions to try to curb its nuclear program. I'm hacking activity, according to the briefing today has increased by about 38% gives you an idea off what they're trying to do, and much of the time they use it to try to get in funds further nuclear program. There was a leaked the United Nations report last week, which suggests that they've made something like three hundreds. Billion dollars in the last year in hacking attempts. And that was our correspondent in the South Korean capital Seoul,.
