back to article Anonymous squirts all over NORKS in birthday surprise outrage

Anonymous hackers have sent North Korean despot Kim Jong-un a little present on the anniversary of his grandfather’s birthday: they vandalised key Nork websites and posted their handiwork on a hijacked Twitter account. The @uriminzokkiri account was taken over earlier this month in the first round of attacks against North …

    It's Ok

    The old 386 PC that NK serves it's "Infallible Internet" from was at the shop for maintenance.

    Interesting that they all use .com domain names.

      Weird. I'd have thought they'd have used .kim instead.

    News from NK

    For the first time in 178 years, when NK first invented the internet, they had to take down one of their servers for maintanence. But now sites are slowly coming back online and are more amazing than ever. Kim-Jong Un was never once depicted as a pig, and if he were, that pig would be the luckiest pig alive to have been compared to the great leader.

    It is a compliment to pigs everywhere.

      This is clearly nonsense. Linux was written by Kim Il Sung so I don't see how any system maintenance is ever required.

      Vile viperous, insidious capitalist Yankee pig dog Wall Street lackeys will persist in indulging their grotesque capitalist tastes on inferior products created in the dens of iniquity "Redmond WA" and "Cupertino CA" rather than use perfect, free operating system developed by the Great Marshal for the masses through his benevolence and love for mankind.

        Yes, whatever.

        Picking on north korea is just beating a dead horse.

        Or a beef lasagna if it's more convenient to you.

          Maybe a dead horse. But nonetheless a dead horse that disavows its own dead. A bit like the "I see dead people" thing...

          But Kim keeps asking for the world to bash his little sand castle over.

          Let's review

          - Self destructive

          - Says stupid things

          - Looks goofy on camera

          Wait a minute...does he think he's a Kardashian?

            No, they're just trying to emulate a previous Supreme Leader - George Bush.

          "....Picking on north korea is just beating a dead horse....." It's worse, actually, as the Anonyputzs' stupidity is probably interfering with real cyber-espionage against the Norks. These idiots need to go back to attacking the equal vacuous Church of Scientology.

    Good joke, more of this please

    The great leader's known for his sense of humour and is sure to see the funny side. Better do some more Anonymous, neither he nor any high-ranking general of his would fly off the handle over something silly, would they?

      That's what I was thinking. Great plan to poke a nuke-armed nutter. What could possibly go wrong?

        Re: Good joke, more of this please

        If indeed they had working nukes, and used them just because anonymous hacked a few of their websites, do you really think they were that stable to begin with?

      You must have missed the secret government files, lists of tax evaders and the other exposed thieves and liars that they have pwned.

      This? This is just for fun.

      Good question, since the server admins would probably have been shot by now.

        "Good question, since the server admins would probably have been shot by now."

        After watching Panorama last night, especially that interview with the doctor who defected stating she would have been taken outside and shot if she dared to ask for funding for medicine to treat her patients, those poor admins are probably in a gulag now because some little tossers thought it would be funny to insult their insane leader for the lulz.

        I applaud some of the things anon. have done, but this is just fucking stupid, pointless and probably got people tortured and killed. I really wish people would think about the consequences of their actions before doing idiotic shit like this.
