Anonymous groups attack North, South Korean websites

'Anonymous' possibly behind attacks on both North and South Korean websites on war anniversary

SEOUL – Exactly 63 years after the outbreak of the Korean War, South Korean hackers working under the ‘Anonymous’ collective appear to have staged a modern-day reconstruction of events by first hacking South Korean websites, then ‘counter-attacking’ North Korean websites.

People claiming to be 'Anonymous'––which has no hierarchical structure and leans towards anarchy––defaced the South Korean presidential and prime ministerial websites on Tuesday morning, releasing links to files containing a staff database for the Blue House, Saenuri Party and the U.S. Army.
