Hacking collective Anonymous has apparently selected its next high-profile target, in the shape of any sites or social network accounts related to North Korea, seizing control of Flickr and Twitter pages in the process.

Anonymous' goal appears to be loosening the restrictions on internet access North Koreans face from their government.

By now, many of you probably know about last week's AntiSec hack. The group claimed to have stolen 12 million Apple UDIDs - 1 million of which were posted to Pastebin - from the computer of an FBI agent. At the time, the FBI said that it didn't have any involvement in the hack, and that AntiSec had made the whole story up.
