North Korea’s government-run Twitter and Flickr accounts, and some of its official websites, have been taken over by a person (or persons) claiming to represent the hacktivist group Anonymous.
On the North Korean Twitter profile @uriminzok, which has more than fourteen thousand followers and is typically used by North Korean authorities to praise the country’s government and communist regime, “Anonymous” have posted a series of disruptive messages and uploaded a new avatar image to the profile, both of which can be seen below.
On the Uriminzokkiri Flickr page, a number of different images have been uploaded, including a rather unflattering “wanted” poster of North Korea’s “Supreme Leader”, Kim Jong-Un.
In this latest update, Anonymous are claiming that Uriminzokkiri.com has also been hacked, and the site is offline at the time of writing.
