"Hackers apparently broke into at least two of North Korea's government-run online sites Thursday..."

"The North's Uriminzokkiri Twitter and Flickr accounts stopped sending out content typical of that posted by the regime in Pyongyang, such as photos of North's leader Kim Jong Un meeting with military officials. Instead, a picture posted Thursday on the North's Flickr site shows Kim's face with a pig-like snout and a drawing of Mickey Mouse on his chest.... Another posting says 'We are Anonymous' in white letters against a black background."

I wonder how many North Korean geeks will be shot and their families sent to the camps because of this hack.

Mockery of tyrants must never cease.

I doubt it's NorK hackers who did this. Nice job, whoever did it.

Maybe KJ was attempting a Curley Imitation

Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk......

It wasn't NorKs who did it, but it was NorKs who "let it happen." They'll be the ones who get it in the neck.

I think the idea is the dead NKs are going to be those who didn't stop the hacks.

A virtual Sarajevo?

The mark of Zero.

Given China's well-developed hacking industry, the first suspect would be the PRC. And Kim probably knows it. He can round up all the Nork hackers he wants and have them all shot: the message is still that he is dependent on the Chinese and Russians and they clearly don't like his childish antics.

A little farmer pig. Good one. I would not have thought of that. Their military hats are too alluring for lampooning, I'd have gone for that. The way they go schwooooooooop around their tiny wrinkled heads. They look ridiculous on top of their malignantly drawn faces atop scrawny necks popping out of oversized military jackets, like turtles meekly looking out, held up by ribbon boards, apparently their entire service biographies right there written in stripped ribbons, goes like this [ran labor camp 38, managed labor division 19, stood on the Pyongyang balcony in 1948, stood on the Pyongyang balcony in 1949, stood on the Pyongyang balcony in 1950, stood on the Pyongyang balcony in 1951...] the whole thing holding their jackets stiffened and their posture erect. But a pig with a rake. Good one.

I hope it was a subtle warning from the PRC.But I don't think that Kim is smart enough to figure it out.Please,please let's not have to kill a lot of people because he is so stupid.

And even those meetings are a diversion from his main job of Looking at Things.

Missing a Balcony ribbon probably not a good sign.

BTW, you see how the picture is the picture of the Flickr page and not the picture itself?

Hackers can use a pic to hack.

I just got paid $6784 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers, made over $9k her first month and she convinced me to try. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. Here's what I do Wow55.com
