Anonymous Hacks North Korea’s Propaganda Website Uriminzokkiri, Steals 15,000 Passwords

Anonymous - North Korea

04/02/2013

A hacker, or hackers, purporting to be part of the Anonymous group claim to have got their hands on more than 15,000 passwords belonging to users of Uriminzokkiri.com, one of North Korea’s primary sites on the Internet.

An anonymously written note – first spotted by the North Korea Tech blog — makes the claim, and discloses what are said to be six sample user records for the site, which is run out of China.

The posting, which is in English, boldly demands that Kim Jong-un resigns and installs free democracy in the country. It also calls on the country to stop its commitment to nuclear weapons and introduce universal Internet access for its citizens. According to the note, the hacker/hackers have access to the country’s local intranets, mail servers and Web servers and are promising to wreak more havoc later this month as part of the Anonymous #OpFreeKorea campaign.

“First we gonna wipe your data, then we gonna wipe your badass dictatorship ‘government’”, the statement says.

Looking at the names of the email addresses of the half a dozen supposed leaks, three appear to be Korean, with the other three Chinese.

Based on the data, the passwords appear to be hashed, which provides some basic security against theft. Passwords are run through an algorithm to generate hashes and, though they can be ‘cracked’, it is a better option than storing plain text passwords.

While it is not clear how strongly the self-professed hackers are affiliated with Anonymous or, indeed, if the claim of 15,000 user credentials is legitimate, the news follows a series of initiatives from the Anonymous group in response to North Korea’s closed Internet, harsh regime and growing hostility to South Korea, the US and other countries.

Anonymous hackers claimed to have taken five of the country’s websites offline over the weekend, with Uriminzokkiri.com said to have been one of those the sites that was successfully targeted. The site has suffered other hackings in the past, going down as recently as January 2013.

The site is North Korea’s main news and ‘information’ (also know as propaganda) portal, and it even has a presence on Twitter. The @uriminzok account began tweeting in August 2010 and currently has more than 13,000 followers.

North Korea was suspected of leading a recent attack on South Korea that saw computer networks at banks and broadcasters go offline due to malware.

Over the weekend, tensions with neighboring South Korea were raised as officials in North Korean capital Pyongyang declared the country is “entering a state of war” with its rival.

Even if this attack wasn’t coordinated by central figures at Anonymous, and regardless of how many credentials were grabbed, it shows that the ‘hacktivist’ community is turning its attention to North Korea. The next activity for the Anonymous #OpFreeKorea campaign is slated as happening on April 19, at which time we’re likely to know more about the kind of access that hackers have to North Korea’s Internet presence.

Hello, citizens of the world.

We are Anonymous

North Korean government is increasingly becoming a threat to peace and freedom.

Don’t misunderstand us: As well we disagree with the USA government too – these guys are crooks, USA is a threat to world peace too, and direct democracy (or any kind of democracy) doesn’t exist there. The American government is a target and enemy of Anonymous as well!

This is not about country vs country – This is about we, the people, the 99% (of USA and of North Korea) vs oppressing and violent regimes (like USA gov. and N.K. gov)!

We, the people, are gathering together because we are stronger now and we won’t fight your wars anymore, we won’t eat your shit anymore!!!

We demand:

– N.K. government to stop making nukes and nuke-threats
– Kim Jong-un to resign
– it’s time to install a free direct democracy in North Korea
– uncensored internet access for all the citizens!

To Kim Jong-un:

So you feel the need to create large nukes and threaten half the world with them?
So you’re into demonstrations of power?, here is ours:
– We are inside your local intranets (Kwangmyong and others)
– We are inside your mailservers
– We are inside your webservers

Enjoy these few records as a proof of our access to your systems (random innocent citizens, collateral damage, because they were stupid enough to choose idiot passwords), we got all over 15k membership records of http://www.uriminzokkiri.com and many more.

First we gonna wipe your data, then we gonna wipe your badass dictatorship “government”.

To the citizens of North Korea we suggest to rise up and bring these motherfuckers of a 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.

We are Anonymous
We are Legion
We do not forgive
We do not forget
Expect us!

  5. why is it ok for the us to b the only ones that have nukes an test them but as soon as kim start testing them in north korea we wanna start shit with them we have an hav used them an if it is true that his country starving an that why he threatening the us then give the guy food this world isnt ours to rule by anyman or gov it is for everyone an everyone alike i dont agree with the man but they shouldnt have to threaten nuke strike for us to help them we have more then plenty an throw away more in a day then other countries use in a year the us has always been selfish an disrepectful to others example. slaves , inidans,an anyone else that was different we ridiculed them ruined them murdered whoever stole from whoever just to get what the us want an it shouldnt b that way if we have to share share it all humans should take of eachother no matter were u from or who you are kim got some shoes to fill and im sure with the pressure of his peers staring at him to see what he will do im sure he fills like hell but doesnt wanna dissapoint his family of leaders he thinks he is expected to be ruthless and vengeful im sure but it his rule now and he can change the way things are done there if he wanted and im sure in his heart he know he wrong but look how he was raised he was raised to rule just as his ancesters did but he need to figure out that he is the man now an what he say goes and it dont matter who disagrees i wish the guy would just ask for help for his people if he need it we would gladly do so i know how it feels to be broke an watch your family starve granted he never had to himself but the pressure of thre people on his shoulders now it can really fuck with you respect thy nieghbor an treat others how you want to be treated an the us tho i love my country has really fucked with people since the beginning of this country we have treated people that are different shitty for so long that it now our turn to be fucked with an like i said i do not agree with kims methods he is going about this the wrong way but he is also doing nothing or have anything that the us dont already have we are not the rulers of the world an we gonna get taught that lesson one day the world should be one we are all the children of god an should act accordingly if someone is hungry feed them if they are cold give them a warm place to sleep if they are sick do what you can to heal them compassion ,honesty,an repect is how life should be lived and i am disturbed that the world has to come to this of shit that is insignifacant to boot who cares who is stronger or has a bigger gun a true human being should feed his enemy wen he is hungry and give him shelter from hard times if they need it compassion is unconditional and is easier then what is going on now nothing has happend that cant be forgivin so far. and i hope kim will realize that nukeing people isnt the answer if 2 country leaders cant get along the 2 said leaders should have to jump in the boxing ring and box eachother you will get the same point across an nobody has to die there shouldnt b missles and bombs or anything like that our prez an kim just need to duke it out or put one of there strongest against one of our strongest an that could be the end of it an everyone lives to fight again there shouldnt be any reason for war but everybody got to try an prove who toughest its like kids throwing tantrums cuz they dont get there way let our prez an kim punch it out all i know is that this shit started because 2 leaders couldnt come up with a resoloution on there own so now the people will have to pay for there fucking mistakes that dont sound very leader like a true leader gives his life to make sure his people have a decent life to live and doesnt have to prove what he can do just because he can he will do whatever is in his power to keep them safe and out of disputte an will think of the people 1st. not that o this guy wont do what i want so lets send 30,000 people to there death just because i am pissed at this guy for shit that was my responsibility anyway if they would all just learn to compramise and work together we wouldnt have this shit goin on if our way of life here is better then theres then we should make an effort to help others have the same quality of life i am so dissappointed with the way man is progressing its all about money or power not about living a quality life nobody cares about there fellow man anymore everyone is out for themselves to do whatever they have to to better there own lives nobody cares about anybody anymore an its unsetteling to realize that i am not perfect but someone could come kill my family an do the worst shi to me i may upset so bad that i would want avenge them but i wouldnt send people that have nothing to do with it to there deaths because im pissed so yes mr kim isnt going about whatever he is doing the totally wrong way threats from someone usually just piss the other person off and then that person that was threatend gonna make a threat an since most men always have to try an be the toughest it just gonna go on am on until someone get hurt when unlesss the said person is in your house fucking your wife or sumthn everything that happen can be forgivin until one or the the other take it to far an do sumthn that cant be forgivin then the bad shit happen so anyway my point is god created no man better then the next we are all equal an people forget that just because they hav more money or live a different way everyone is equal
