      A threat to the lives of some 20 apparently random Koreans by the terror group Islamic State or ISIS has been traced to a Kuwaiti IP address.

      ISIS hackers accessed the computer network of a news website here and retrieved the personal data of the 20, which it then published on YouTube together with a call to followers to "kill them wherever you find them."

      Seoul police said investigators analyzed the logs of the server from which the data was stolen and found that the hackers used an IP address in Kuwait.

      Police are not ruling out that the hackers rerouted their IP address and are enlisting the help of international law enforcement agencies to investigate the source further.
