North Korea’s Facebook clone hacked by UK teen shortly after launch


Just days after North Korea launched its own version of Facebook, a UK teen hacked into the site by guessing the login credentials of the site’s security. He later went ahead and changed the content in the advertising boxes. The website was hosted on a North Korean server and appeared to have mimicked Facebook’s layout and template design.

The site was first spotted by Dyn Research, a firm that monitors and analyses internet use across the globe. Andrew McKean, an 18 year-old college student from Scotland, claimed he gained control of the website by correctly guessing that the security login credentials of the site were the predictable “admin” and “password”.
