McAfee: Malware hunts for South Korean military secrets


A study by McAfee Labs said the group has created malware which scanned systems for keywords including "weapon", "US Army" and "secret".

It said that once a computer's contents had been catalogued, the attackers could "grab documents at will".

South Korea has played down the threat.

Its defence ministry told the Associated Press news agency that it was technically impossible to have lost classified reports because the computers on which it stored military secrets were not connected to the net.
