Annnomous Threates Cyberwar on North Korea if Kim Jong-Un doesnt Step Down

by Stephen BrownApril 5, 2013


In a move that sounds like something from Hollywood fiction, for the first time, a computer group has declared war a nation. Today the notorious hacking group ‘Anonymous’ which has targeted pedophiles, companies, & financial institutions,issued their most audacious statement yet.  The Group says that it has begun a new initiative called “Operation Free Korea” and is demanding controversial leader Kim Jong-Un resign and install free democracy in the Asian country or else. Thats not all, the group also demands North Korea abandon all of it’s nuclear ambitions, & for the government to give universal and uncensored Internet access to its citizens.

Anonymous hackers claim to have access to the country’s local intranets, mail servers and Web servers and are threatening to wage all out cyber war if their demands are not met. Yesterday, all of the North Korea News and propaganda networks were hijacked displaying Kim Jong-Un as a pig, with snouts and all. Later in the day, the North Korean Twitter page, with 14,000 followers, switched from posting in Korean to English this morning. The profile picture was changed to an illustration of two dancers wearing Guy Fawkes masks.

Annnomous states “We got all over 15k membership records of Uriminzokkiri.com (the states main propaganda site)  and many more,” “First we gonna wipe your data, then we gonna wipe your badass dictatorship ‘government.’”

Anonymous’ threats towards North Korea come amid increased tensions on the Korean Peninsula with South Korea and the United States could lead to an armed conflict. The group explicitly stated, however, that it does not support the U.S. and is instead fighting for freedom.

For the first time, a computer group could escalate already high tensions between nations. Do you think this could potentially lead into a real war. How do you feel about all of this. Please leave your Facebook comments below
