Anonymous didn't stop there, as they also attacked minjok.com, jajusasang.com and paekdu-hanna.com. These sites were hacked to display images mocking North Korean supreme leader, Kim Jong-un. This also isn't the first time Anonymous have hacked North Korea, as earlier this month the hacking collective gained access to the North Korean Twitter feed.

With access to NK's Twitter feed, they posted tweets to images poking fun at Kim Jong-un, condemning him for "threatening world peace with ICBMs and nuclear weapons" and "wasting money while his people starve".
