North Korea’s recent threats against South Korea and the United States haven’t gone unnoticed by Anonymous. The group of hackers has claimed to have successfully gained access to over 15,000 user passwords from NK’s largest news website, Uriminzokkiri.com.
Anonymous claims to have stolen the hashed passwords, releasing six, three of which are for Chinese user accounts. The hacking group is demanding the leader of the temperamental nation step down and allow true democracy to exist.
This message, supposedly from Anonymous, outlines their reasoning and demands:
North Korean government is increasingly becoming a threat to peace and freedom. Don’t misunderstand us: As well we disagree with the USA government too – these guys are crooks, USA is a threat to world peace too, and direct democracy (or any kind of democracy) doesn’t exist there. The American government is a target and enemy of Anonymous as well!
This is not about country vs country – This is about we, the people, the 99% (of USA and of North Korea) vs oppressing and violent regimes (like USA gov. and N.K. gov)! We, the people, are gathering together because we are stronger now and we won’t fight your wars anymore, we won’t eat your shit anymore!!!
– N.K. government to stop making nukes and nuke-threats
– Kim Jong-un to resign
– it’s time to install a free direct democracy in North Korea
– uncensored internet access for all the citizens!
To Kim Jong-un:
So you feel the need to create large nukes and threaten half the world with them?
