Located this screenshot on 7747.net and it seemed a little unusual. Our Chinese hacker, named ?Tom?, has hacked the UN Statistics Division website and failed to leave any sort of patriotic message. Over at his website hacker.zcuu.com:
Tom Dong, headquarters located in Shenyang, holds the record as far as I can tell for the boldest Chinese hacker on the web. He doesn’t stop there, he is a man on a mission. It seems Tom and his group perform spot inspections on different groups in the Red Hacker Alliance and other Chinese websites to see if they can find problems.
This list indicates they conducted security inspections on:
- China Black Hawk Union
- The Red Wolf Network Security Organization
- Hacker Animation
- The New Century Network
- Online Download Net
There were more Red Hacker Alliance sites listed but I decided to look at the one marked Online Download Net since it had been checked by Tom and wow…
Tom is a bit of a mad man.
The first passage sums up the whole adventure as Tom explains that a loophole in the homepage allowed him to guess Jin Hua’s (site admin’s) password. Tom then contacted Jin about the problem and helped him patch it. The last section is a screenshot of the e-mail he sent to site admin to inform him, that while it wasn’t a bad website, there were some flaws…and he (site admin) should be a little more diligent. GOTTA Love the Tom!
Gave a brief glance at Tom’s about page but it was a little too rambling and I still can’t figure out if the other groups in the Alliance want Tom doing this or not.
But…I’m pretty sure the United Nations didn’t…
