    U.S. official says not ruling out eventual direct talks with N.Korea

    TOKYO/UNITED NATIONS, Oct 17 (Reuters) - The United States is not ruling out the eventual possibility of direct talks with North Korea, Deputy Secretary of State John J. Sullivan said on Tuesday, hours after Pyongyang warned nuclear war might break out at any moment. Talks between the adversaries have long been urged by China in particular, but Washington and its ally Japan have been reluctant to sit down at the table while Pyongyang continues to pursue a goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the United States.

    North Korea likely behind Taiwan SWIFT cyber heist: BAE

    Cyber-security firm BAE Systems Plc said on Monday it believes the North Korean Lazarus hacking group is likely responsible for a recent cyber heist in Taiwan, the latest in a string of hacks targeting the global SWIFT messaging system. "The likely culprit is Lazarus," BAE cyber-intelligence chief Adrian Nish told Reuters by telephone. The British firm has previously linked Lazarus to last year's $81 million cyber heist at Bangladesh's central bank, as have other cyber firms including Russia's Kaspersky Lab and California-based Symantec Corp.

    BAE to cut 2,000 jobs as Typhoon fighter orders stall

    BAE Systems' new boss will cut around 2,000 jobs at Britain's biggest defence contractor to tackle dwindling orders for the Typhoon fighter jet and the loss of revenue from Cold-War era aircraft nearing retirement. The Eurofighter Typhoon has won fewer orders this year than rivals such as the Rafale built by France's Dassault Aviation, and BAE is slowing production while it waits for Qatar to confirm its intention to buy 24 of the jets. The aircraft is the most important in BAE's portfolio, accounting for nearly a third of its air unit's sales last year.

    BAE Systems to cut more than 1,000 manufacturing jobs - Sky News

    Defence company BAE Systems will announce more than 1,000 job cuts this week, mainly affecting its Warton plant in Lancashire, northern England, where it assembles the Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jet, Sky News said on Monday. BAE Systems, which employs 34,600 people in Britain, has already slowed production of the jet while it awaits an expected major order from Saudi Arabia. Chief Executive Charles Woodburn, who recently took over from Ian King, said in August he was confident about future orders for the aircraft, which is a joint project between BAE, France's Airbus and Italy's Finmeccanica.
