South Korea blamed North Korea Tuesday for a December cyberattack on an operator of a nuclear power plant, saying that the virus used in the attack was similar to one made by North Koreans.

"The malicious codes used for the nuclear-operator hacking were the same in composition and working methods as the so-called 'kimsuky' that North Korean hackers use," a statement from the Seoul central prosecutors' office said, according to Reuters.
