SEOUL, Nov. 22 (Yonhap) -- North Korea apparently poses no immediate threat to South Korea's cybersecurity, with no serious attempt reported at least since late March, Seoul's presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said Thursday.
"The country's cybersecurity alert level has remained at normal since 6 p.m. on March 20," Cheong Wa Dae spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom told a press briefing.
Kim's remarks came in response to a report by a local daily that North Korea appears to have attempted to hack into South Korea's military and government intelligence units in March, just before its leader Kim Jong-un held a historic summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on April 27.
Moon and Kim have since held two more rounds of inter-Korean summits in May and September.
