International hackers' collective Anonymous has broken into North Korean propaganda website Uriminzokkiri again and released the personal information of about 100 more subscribers on Tuesday. The hackers earlier released the personal information of thousands of subscribers to the website.

The group said it had hacked five North Korean propaganda websites on nation founder Kim Il-sung's 101st birthday Monday. Others are minjok.com, jajusasang.com and paekdu-hanna.com.

The information disclosed this time includes subscribers' self-written profiles. The last batch contained only names and e-mail addresses, and many ostensible subscribers claimed their personal information had been stolen.

"If anybody subscribes to a pro-Communist group and posts an article in praise of North Korea, they may have acted to benefit the enemy," a spokesman for the National Police Agency said. "They have to be charged with violating the National Security Law."
