North Korea Twitter Account: Hacked By Anonymous!

by at . Comments

With North Korea threatening war with the U.S. this week, hackers reportedly affiliated with Anonymous broke into the rogue state's official Twitter account.

The country's Twitter and Flickr pages stopped sending out typical content from the Pyongyang regime, such as photos of Kim Jong Un and military leaders.

Kim Jong Un Hacked

Instead, a picture posted on the North's Flickr site shows Kim Jong Un's face with a pig-like snout and a drawing of Mickey Mouse on his chest.

Underneath, the text reads: "Threatening world peace with ICBMs and Nuclear weapons / Wasting money while his people starve to death."

Pretty much sums up Dennis Rodman's dictator BFF.

Another post claimed responsibility, boasting "We are Anonymous" - the notorious hacker activist collective - in white letters against a black background.

A statement purporting to come from the attackers said they compromised 15,000 user records hosted on the official Uriminzokkiri (dot) com and other websites.

The authenticity of the Anonymous statement couldn't be confirmed, but such is the case with hackers, and the North's official website did not open Thursday.

Tweets on the North's Twitter account - opened in 2010 and somehow boasting 13,000 followers - said "Hacked" followed by a link to North Korea-related websites.

The North uses the social media to praise its system and leaders and also to repeat commentaries sent out by North's official Korean Central News Agency.

At least it did. Who knows when it'll be back up and Tweeting.

And have fun operating missiles with no computers, Kim.
