North Korean hacking allegations[edit]

In October 2017 it was reported that an upcoming drama about a British nuclear scientist taken prisoner in North Korea, commissioned by Channel 4 and with the working title Opposite Number, had caused the production company's computer network to be targeted by North Korean hackers. The project was subsequently shelved.[3]
