North Korea was hacked by Anonymous again as part of their #OpFreeKorea, or Operation Free Korea, campaign.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, North Korea was hacked with its Flickr accounts, with Anonymous posting humorous pictures of Kim Jong-Un as a pig. Recently, 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.
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 install free democracy in North Korea.
This time Anonymous hacked the North Korea twitter account, which normally posts articles and bellicose rhetoric from the Kim Jong-Un regime in Pyongyang. North Korea opened its Twitter account in 2010. It has more than 13,000 followers.
North Korea being hacked is proven by various new tweets that declare “hacked” or “Tango down,” which is also the focus of new image uploaded to the North Korea Flickr account. “Tango Down” is military slang for an enemy being taken out, so Anonymous is merely saying they have interrupted services, not that they’ve caused permanent harm to North Korea.
Anonymous previously released this statement after North Korea was hacked:
“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.”
North Korea has apparently responded to the hacking by taking down their accounts. Both the Flickr and Twitter accounts for Uriminzokkiri seem wiped clean.
What do you think about North Korea being hacked by Anonymous?
