“Hacktivist” group Anonymous promised to take on North Korea, and it’s apparently made good on that promise, even as the U.S. and North Korea continue to dance around each other like drunken townies in a dive bar.
It appears Anonymous has hacked North Korea propaganda outlet Uriminzokkiri’s Twitter and Flickr accounts, planting a Guy Fawkes mask on the Flickr account and an image of Kim Jong Un with pig ears and snout, tagged as “Nuke Nuke Mickey Lover.

Obviously, those images are uncharacteristic even blasphemous for Uriminzokkiri, but it’s unclear how much good this hack will actually do.
