Hacker claims to have cracked North Korea’s intranet

In email Q&A, “Slipstream” says they leaked the Red Star operating system – and claims to have more

In the week running up to the New Year, many were surprised to see what appeared to be an entirely authentic version of North Korea’s famous OS X knock off, Red Star, appear online.

Claiming responsibility for the 2.2g download was a hacker, or hackers, by the name of Slipstream, claiming they had been "pulling data out of DPRK's ass since 2014.” Slipstream further used the download to ask for donations in crypto-currency dogecoin.
