South Korea’s nuclear plant operator has been breached, raising fears that North Korea could have targeted key pieces of infrastructure in its southern neighbor before employing similar attacks against the US.

Currently, South Korean authorities are claiming that only non-critical information about the plants have been leaked, The Guardian reports. The stolen information include personal data for approximately 10,000 employees, at least two reactor designs, and electricity flow charts.

So far, no blame has been placed on North Korea for the attack. However, the malware and code that was used in the nuclear plant hacks resemble code previously used by Pyongyang.

Lim Jong In, a cyber security expert who works with South Korea’s military, told CNN that he believes that there could be a link between the attacks. The current round of hacking bears resemblance to both the Sony hack and a previous attack on South Korea’s media, banks, and ATMs in 2013.
