Anonymous has hacked the North Korea Twitter and Flickr accounts as part of the #OpFreeKorea, or Operation Free Korea, campaign.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, tensions have only been rising as North Korea factories were blocked to South Korean workers.
Previously, 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.
The newest phase in Anonymous’ plans for Operation Free Korea began with transforming Kim Jong-Un into a pig. They created a $1 million wanted sign graphic that calls Kim Jong-Un “Nuke Nuke Mickey Lover” and lists his crimes as “Threatening world peace with ICBMs and nuclear weapons, wasting money while his people starve to death, [and] concentration camps and the worst human rights violations in the world.” Further, Anonymous claims “the United Nations officially sanctioned North Korea through the ICC due to its severe violation of human rights, including concentration camps and torture.”
Anonymous hacking North Korea in this manner is supposed just the beginning. Anonymous says, “We got all over 15k membership records of Uriminzokkiri.com and many more. First we gonna wipe your data, then we gonna wipe your badass dictatorship’ government.” Anonymous desires to hack the North Korea intranet (as in, internal network) but experts question whether that’s even possible since the North Korea intranet is not even connected to the world at large through the internet. As such, these hacks by Anonymous are symbolic at best because most North Koreans do not have access to the internet and will never see these images.
