After reading new threads here about NK I went trauling the internet to see how different sources were telling the same stories.
I just read about this while reading a separate article on The Sun website.
The Article I was reading is:
North Korea gives its military clearance to attack nuke the US Read more:
Within that article was a statement that read:
Meanwhile China-based North Korean news website Uriminzokkiri, which has close ties to Pyongyang, appears to have been hacked. Its Twitter account
had its photo changed to the mask logo of the Anonymous hacker group superimposed on the North Korean flag. The website is currently inaccessible
with companion sites also defaced. One site also showed a ‘Wanted’ poster with Kim Jong-un donning a Mickey Mouse tattoo and a pig’s nose and
ears. Read more:
I then began to search for this particular story somewhere else as it didnt appear to be important enough for its own article in The Sun.
The BBC have reported on it saying:
BBC article on Anonymous hacking NK websites
The hacking collective Anonymous has said it has been "hacking" and vandalising social networking profiles linked to North Korea.
The group has issued several warnings since the country's threats have intensified. Uriminzokkiri, a news site, has been forced offline - while
Twitter and Flickr accounts have been breached.
Anonymous also claimed to have accessed 15,000 usernames and passwords from a university database.
As part of action which the loosely organised collective has called "Operation Free Korea", the hackers have called for leader Kim Jong-un to step
down, a democratic government to be put in place - and for North Koreans to get uncensored internet access.
I havnt found this on ATS so far so thought I would share with you.
I think this is important. I have always been in agreement with Anonymous and what they do and strongly against those who try to label them cyber
But as many of them who ridicule Anonymous are American, what is their reaction to them carrying out their "terrorist" attacks on an American
I would also just like to express my worries with the current NK situation. I think people are taking a very relaxed approach to all the news coming
out of NK right now but in my opinion I think NK have talked themselves past the point of bluffing. With everything that has been said and done I
think they can no longer go back on their word and this situation will not end peacefully.
I think NK, SK & the US are going to war which leaves me with the worrying thought of many other countries being dragged into this (UK, France,
Germany, Italy, Spain, Russia, China, Japan) to name a few.
