Group claims to have set up 'Ninja Gateway' giving North Koreans global internet access
SEOUL – Secret North Korean military documents revealing missile secrets have been obtained and will be released on June 25, international hacking collective ‘Anonymous’ claims, although experts remain skeptical of the group’s success.
“We will no longer put up with your threats towards world peace and the Republic of Korea,” the South Korean hackers said in a press release late on Wednesday evening, a copy of which was also posted on YouTube.
FULL TRANSCRIPT OF ANONYMOUS KOREA INTERVIEW:
Hwang Yoon-taek: “We hacked into the KCNA last May”
Q- Is it possible to hack into the Kwangmyong network? It’s closed.
A- There are 3 routes that connect Kwangmyong to the outside world. One server is located in China, and we’ve already hacked it, and got in that way. We’ve done it. There’s nothing North Korea can do to stop it now. We’ve got all the core information we need.
Q- What exactly do you have?
A- Information regarding missiles, their serial numbers, and North Korean high-ranking officials. We won’t release everything, however –– only some things so we can verify the attack. After that, we’ll hand everything over to Wikileaks.
Q- You could be putting yourself at personal risk by attacking North Korea, why do it?
A- Don’t worry. We use at least 7 shared IP addresses that are based overseas. If you try to track it, it will take years [to trace].
Q. Where is the information now? Do you have it saved at home?
A. No way. It’s broken up and dispersed on the internet.
Q. Is there any way to verify that you really hacked the North Korean intranet?
A. On May 12th, the KCNA system stopped for 2 minutes. That was us. We will release missile serial numbers soon so that you can be certain about this.
What exactly do you have?
A- Information regarding missiles, their serial numbers, and North Korean high-ranking officials.

No kidding.... Kim was JUST starting to tone down and calm down. This will likely get him all riled up, all over again.
As another post said...these are the things that put me off Anonymous as well. No thought whatsoever given to consequences of things just a general eager beaver approach to "CAN we.." not "SHOULD we...".
Booooo on this one. It's just going to start trouble right back up.
The Associated Press today released new photos and video of Google chairman Eric Schmidt's controversial trip to North Korea. Schmidt, who arrived in Pyongyang yesterday with former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, spent his first day visiting a computer lab at Kim Il Sung University, where students were busily surfing the internet from HP desktops. North Korea has one of the most restrictive internet policies in the world, but librarians at the Pyongyang-based university say students there have had access to the web ever since the lab opened in April 2010. Most students, however, are instructed to use the internet for educational purposes only, and the government continues to closely monitor online activity. Schmidt and Google executive Jared Cohen chatted with university students during their tour of the lab, with some demonstrating their ability to search and find information on Google, Wikipedia and university sites. Only a select few in North Korea have full access to the web, while the vast majority are restricted to a government-run intranet that filters out everything except for select news sites and curated content. Richardson, meanwhile, spent part of his day meeting with officials from North Korea's Foreign Ministry. Upon arriving in Pyongyang Monday, the former governor announced plans to negotiate the release of a detained American citizen, describing the mission as a "private, humanitarian visit." In an interview with the Associated Press today, Richardson characterized his meeting as "a good, productive but frank meeting."
