The hacking collective called Anonymous is going on a rampage, breaching social networking profiles linked to North Korea. The organized group of hackers, seem to be carrying out their actions as part of their "Operation Free Korea" campaign. The group has asked North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un to step down and democratic government to be put in place. They have also demanded uncensored internet access to North Korea.
The group has used Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack to make Uriminzokkiri, a news site, to go offline, while breaching it's Twitter and Flickr accounts. They have changed the news site Twitter's avatar to a picture of two people dancing along with the words tango down. While tweeting a message saying "hacked".
The group posted a "wanted" poster mocking Kim Jong-un, on Urminzokkiri's Flickr page.
They also claimed to have stolen 15,000 usernames and passwords from a university database.
According to BBC, anonymous posted a message saying "To the citizens of North Korea we suggest to rise up and bring [this] oppressive government down!"
"We are holding your back and your hand, while you take the journey to freedom, democracy and peace."
"You are not alone. Don't fear us, we are not terrorist, we are the good guys from the internet. AnonKorea and all the other Anons are here to set you free."
Air Koryo, the country's airline, is also suspected to be target of a Air Koryo, DdoS attack, as it has become unreachable.
