Cyber Hissy-Fit

Published by at 6:39 pm under US attacks

In an article posted today (21 Nov 07) on, a Chinese hacker going by the pseudonym“Name81″ apparently had an online breakdown after suffering Taiwanese Independence Syndrome. The combination of Chen Suibian’s moves to join the UN and US arms sales to Taiwan caused him to hack 32 websites in the United States. Here is his blog site:


No mention as to which websites were hacked but he did have a nice little anti-US rant on his blog.

UPDATE: Kept looking a little more and these seem to be the sites he claims to have hacked

UPDATE: All hacks have the same IP address and location Racine Wisconsin.<br>

    This is one virtual host server. He found a vulnerability in c-panel, php or something else and had access to all of the sites hosted on that server. Not the hack of the year but his comments are amusing.

    If you don’t stop selling arms to Taiwan, I’ll keep hacking! Feel my anger coursing through teh interwebs!

    The server runs IIS so it probably wasn’t the typical c-panel exploit. Probably a dictionary attack. FTP is exposed on the server.

    How did you locate the hacked web pages? I was trying to find them for a long time and had zero luck. Try not to make me look too bad with the answer. :)

    I’m not sure what you mean by locating the hacked web pages. They were linked on name81′s blog.

    I took some of the names, ran it through and figured out it was a virtual host. Centralops also has a service scan tool that shows the banner from ftp, smtp, http, pop3 and imap4.

    I’m pretty sure he hacked these sites by running a dictionary tool like the one in the video on your blog. I’d like to know for sure though. Maybe I can get in touch with the web host since they obviously don’t know that their server was compromised.

    Ouch! Yeah, missed the links on his blog somehow, beer, whiskey, sun in my eyes, earthquake… One of the reasons I kept going back to the site was that they seemed too geo-oriented. Why would a Chinese hacker hit multiple sites in Wisconsin? Besides upsetting the good people in a church and dentist office it didn’t seem to make sense. Then I checked a little more and it was all one server, so I kinda thought what you confirmed, that he had an inside to only that one server. God, I wish I had your computer skills!

    I would happily trade my computer skills for your language skills.

    FYI: These defaced pages are still up there. I informed the web host but they never got back to me or checked into it apparently.

    Yeah, I have had the exact same experience. Written to a couple of these hacked sites to inform them and received absolutely nothing back.

    These pages are still up.

    Looks like the Racine Rapid Response team fixed the web pages. Now they are free to sell dog bones to Taiwan again. That’s a relief.
