Hackers Hit North Korean Government Sites

by Associated Press posted Apr 4 2013 7:07PM
 SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - Hackers have apparently broken into at least two of North Korea's government-run online sites. 
 
     The Twitter and Flickr accounts stopped sending out the usual content, such as photos of leader Kim Jong Un meeting with military officers. Instead, a picture posted today on the Flicker site shows Kim's face with a pig-like snout. A drawing of Mickey Mouse is on his chest. A caption accuses Kim of threatening world peace and "wasting money while his people starve to death."
 
     Another posting says "We are Anonymous" in white letters against a black background. Anonymous is the name of a hacker activist group.
 
     Tweets on the North's Twitter account said "Hacked," followed by a link to North Korea-related websites. 
 
     North Korea's Twitter account has more than 13,000 followers. The North uses social media to praise its system and leaders.
