Following their breach of the North Korean news site Uriminzokkiri.com earlier this week, members of Anonymous recently took over Uriminzokkiri's Twitter and Flickr accounts (h/t CNET News).

While the Flickr account has since been restored, the Twitter feed still lists a series of hacked sites, including, in addition to Uriminzokkiri.com and its Flickr account, ryugyongclip.com, ryomyong.com, aindf.com and ournation-school.com -- and while most of the sites are now down, at least one still boasts an image of Kim Jong Un with a pig's nose and ears, along with the statement, "Threatening world peace with ICBMs and Nuclear weapons / Wasting money while his people starve to death / Concentration Camps and the worst human rights violation in the world."

In a Pastebin post, the hackers published several thousand records allegedly stolen from Uriminzokkiri.com (expanding on the six records they released earlier this week) and stated, "We have a few guys on the ground who managed to bring the real Internet into the country using a chain of long distance Wi-Fi repeaters with proprietary frequencies, so they're not jammed (yet). We also have access to some N.K. phone landlines which are connected to Kwangmyong through dial-ups."
