While the DPRK was busy making grand plans to launch nuclear missiles at the US and its allies, vaguely declaring a “state of war” against South Korea, and moving mid-range missiles to its east coast for ‘test’ firing, the hacktivist group Anonymous, who recently began a series of cyberattacks against the DPRK, seemingly scored their first victory.
Already claiming to have gained access to the North Korean intranet service, Anonymous hackers have apparently now managed to take over the government’s Twitter and Flickr accounts. If that somehow doesn’t drive North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to abdicate on the spot, then maybe the group’s diagnosis of his “tiny dick syndrome” will.
Anonymous is claiming responsibility for hacking the DPRK’s official Twitter account and changing the profile image to that of two tango dancers in Guy Fawkes masks. Supposedly the group also took over the government’s Flickr page, and posted this nightmare-inducing image of Kim Jong-un as some sort of pig-man hybrid.
And just in case Kim Jong-un didn’t get the message, the hackers addressed this statement to the dictator:
@ Kim Jong-un
You just went full retarded! Never go full retarded.
We feel really sorry for your suffering of TDS
(aka “tiny dick syndrome”) but be assured, threatening the
world with your nukes won’t make it any better at all.
If you had finally opened up your country for the
real internet, you would have already seen over 9000 ads for
products devoted to solve your problem.
@ governments of North Korea AND of USA
If you’re so much eager to fight each other, lock yourselves
in a bunker, deep deep down underground and nuke yourself!
So the terrorists of the world will be gone and the more
intelligent people – your citizens – will survive without
having to fight your wars. THAT’s how Darwin works!
Yikes! If these online threats do provoke the DPRK, let’s just hope that Kim Jong-un doesn’t try to compensate for his supposed TDS with massive missiles.
