North Korean Radio Station got Hacked and the station broadcasted “The Final Count Down”

News of the event was posted on Twitter by vigilante hacker, “The Jester,” who has in the past increased fame by hacking jihadist websites, and who in October 2016 destroyed the website of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs with the message, “Stop attacking Americans.”

“A god amongst us has hijacked 6400kHz (North Korean station) and is presenting the Final Countdown,” said The Jester on Twitter on Nov. 9, and posted a link to a reporting of the broadcast.

 The 6400kHz station is based in Kanggye close to the North Korean border with China and is used by North Korean radio Pyongyang Broadcasting Station, which also broadcasts on the 621, 1053, and 3250 frequencies.The North Korean communist regime has in the past adopted the 6400kHz radio station to spread coded messages. Strategic Sentinel, a Washington-based independent geostrategic consulting company, noted that North Korea often broadcasts messages on the station ahead of provocations.On Sept. 23, Strategic Sentinel declared on Twitter, “Radio Pyongyang has publicized coded messages on 6400kHz. Usually, when they do this it signals an upcoming provocation.”

“The most likely thought for these messages is an expected missile test on the heels of #DPRK FM #UNGA statements,” it stated in September, just after North Korea declared it was considering a hydrogen bomb test in the Pacific Ocean.

It also noted that, earlier, North Korea made broadcasts two days before managing a nuclear test, one day before a ballistic missile test, and one day before Japanese flyovers.

After the North Korean broadcast was hijacked to play a ’80s rock song, many reacted on Twitter with praise and laugh while poking fun at the absolute regime.
