N.K. accuses S. Korea of having hands behind cyber attacks by 'Anonymous' hackers
SEOUL, April 20 (Yonhap) -- North Korea accused South Korea on Saturday of having hands behind cyber attacks on its propaganda Web sites by an international hacking group, denouncing the attacks as part of an organized smear campaign against the communist nation.

The Anonymous hacktivist group has conducted a series of attacks on several North Korean-run Web sites, including Uriminzokkiri, and stole lists of tens of thousands of their subscribers and made them public. The latest attacks came last week on the 101st birthday of the communist regime's founder Kim Il-sung.
