Anonymous hacks North Korean "Uriminzokkiri" web site
The cyber conflict involving the two Koreas took a new twist recently when the international hacking group Anonymous hacked an official North Korean web site,"Uriminzokkiri" . As noted by the Korea Joongang Daily, "Anonymous, a so-called “hacktivist” group, said it hacked into the pro-North Web site uriminzokkiri.com in order to tell Pyongyang to stop threatening the world and to warn North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to step down and give his people freedom. It leaked records of the Web site’s 9,001 members on Thursday including names, user IDs, dates of birth, e-mail addresses and genders. About 5,000 of the e-mail addresses were from South Korea."
