In North Korea 15,000 passwords were stolen by Anonymous hackers as part of the #OpFreeKorea campaign.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, North Korea declared a state of war against South Korea last week. North Korea’s official statement also promised nuclear war against the United States. Today, the announcement of increasing the North Korea nuclear weapons stockpile coincided with news of the North Korea nuclear reactor being restarted in Yongbyon, which would allow the Kim Jong-Un regime to continue making plutonium.
F-22 Raptor stealth fighter jets were sent to South Korea as part of ongoing military exercises with South Korea that occur every year. These F-22 stealth fighters in Korea would join the B-52 bombers and B-2 stealth bombers that were already sent to South Korea. The USS Fitzgerald, a destroyer capable of intercepting missiles, was also originally thought to be deployed up the coast line of North Korea, but it turns out the radar-equipped destroyer USS John S. McCain will be going instead.
The Anonymous hacker group claims to have hacked North Korea, getting their hands on more than 15,000 passwords belonging to users of Uriminzokkiri.com, one of North Korea’s primary sites on the Internet. They released six sample user records and boldly demanded that Kim Jong-Un resign and installs free democracy in North Korea.
In addition, Anonymous demands North Korea stop seeking nuclear weapons and provide internet access to its citizens, saying, “First we gonna wipe your data, then we gonna wipe your badass dictatorship ‘government’.”
Anonymous claims to have access to the country’s local intranets, mail servers and web servers. Anonymous hackers claimed to have taken five of the country’s websites offline over the weekend. The next activity for the Anonymous #OpFreeKorea campaign is slated as happening on April 19.
