Teen Hacks North Korean Facebook

Blog Post

“Uh, I didn’t create this site just found the login," wrote 18 year-old Andrew McKean, who is a student in Scotland, and who also hacked North Korea’s version of Facebook ("Best Korea's Social Network”), using "admin" as the username and "Password" as the password.

Not only was he savvy enough to hack into the site, but it seems he must have also seen the Seth Rogan/James Franco flick, "The Interview," because he made the decision to NOT criticize Kim Jong-un, nor did he prank any of the profiles. The teenager could have decided to wreak havoc on the site, but instead he chose to leave the simple message, informing the creators of their mistake.

"Best Korean Social Network" has since been taken offline, to fix their security issues and to (hopefully) select a more secure password.
