North Korea’s government-run propaganda account on Twitter appears to have been hijacked by hackers. Tweets from @uriminzok this morning include the words “hacked” and “Tango Down.”
The Uriminzokkiri Flickr stream now includes a photo of a Guy Fawkes mask and an image with the words “We Are Anonymous.” Another image calls Kim Jong Un “NUKE NUKE Mickey Lover” and replaces the dictator’s nose and ears with pig-like features. The Photoshopped image includes this text:
Threatening world peace with ICBMs and Nuclear weapons
Wasting money while his people starve to death
Concentration Camps and the worst human rights violation in the world
The United Nations officially sanctioned North Korea through the ICC due to its severe violation of human rights including concentration camps and torture
In addition, the Associated Press reports that North Korean websites may have been compromised by hackers.
A statement purporting to come from the attackers and widely circulated online said that they had compromised 15,000 user records hosted on Uriminzokkiri.com and other websites. The authenticity of the statement couldn’t be confirmed, but the North’s official website did not open Thursday.
Some wise advice for North Korea:
