From The Korea Times:
North Korea launched its own version of Facebook -- "Best Korea's Social Network" -- on Friday but shut it down soon after a Scottish teenager hacked into it.
According to CNN Money, Doug Madory, the director of Internet analysis firm Dyn DNS, found the website on a North Korean server and told the media it was available to people outside the isolated country at www.starcon.net.kp.
But within hours of its launch, Scottish teenager Andrew McKean hacked the website by using "admin" and "password" for the login details.
He said he could "delete and suspend users, change the site's name, censor certain words, manage the ads and see everyone's emails."
The website not only looked like Facebook, but had similar functions such as uploading a cover photo and profile picture, finding friends, sending messages and posting a status message.
Madory said: "[I'm] not sure this was an official North Korean government project. But someone inside the country had to have done this."
He said the website was hosted in North Korea, unlike other North Korean websites, which were hosted in China.
