North Korea‘s highly sophisticated, supposedly impenetrable version of Facebook – called ‘Best Korean Social Network’ – has had its ass handed to it by a teenager.

Scottish student Andrew McKean, 18, hacked the commies’ clone of the social media site hours after it went live, taking control by using the very obvious, very default combination of:

Username: Admin.

Password: Password.


Apparently the North Korean IT dept made the huge, tiny mistake of *not* changing the default security settings, which explains why McKean got in without exercising even one iota of genuine hacking skill.

He basically had full control of the site, telling Motherboard he could “delete and suspend users, change the site’s name, censor certain words and manage the eventual ads, and see everyone’s emails.”

Obviously not expecting to gain access – and fearful of an ass-whooping by dicktator Kim Jong-un if he fucked anything up – McKean left one simple message: “Uh, I didn’t create this site just found the login”.

The Worst Best Korean Social Network has been taken offline in light of the security breach and, presumably, the network administrators are now all dead.
