The Demise of Hao Tian’s Blog

   Chinese Hacker Malware

  Elia Florio has written a very informative piece on a Chinese hacker named Hao Tian distributing a program that exploits vulnerabilities in MS Office for Word.

The attacker has only to bind an executable such as Backdoor or an Infostealer trojan, and the tool will do the rest. It will create a malicious MS Word file that can drop and run the chosen .exe file. No need to analyze buffer overflows, find return addresses, or program complicated shellcode. Zero knowledge, maximum result, and minimal effort.

Closely following the article, Hao Tian decided his registration was full and closed shop.

    Interesting, dude.
    Absloutely it is another interesting place that misleads people into hating/fearing them. I know that this is somehow because you think China is still behind the iron curtain, therefore, hackers in this mysterious country SHOULD BE evil, or even the new threat of this planet. Your logic is really funny :)
    According to the texts I could found in this blog (or whatever), you are discribing nothing but the scriptkiddies in China. Definitely you know nothing about the underground hacker society in that country. That’s because you cannot join in. You cannot even know any of the entrances or someone who could tell you the entrance. All these prevent you from getting closer to those who WE called hackers, those who have found and are still holding more than 80% windows related 0days in this planet just for fun.
    I know that symantec had picked up a useless kernel bug which was dropped like a rubbish. But I don’t know if they have hold a party to celebrate it because they can do nothing but gathering rubbish that has been used for a century or more. I hope you would NOT pick up my words. Just continue writing such funny blogs! I will recommend this site instead of any joke bulletins. And I hope this would increase the number of your visitors. Good luck, and Merry X’mas.

    @Illusioninst:

    How would anyone know that they have 80% of the planet’s windows zero-days?

    S/he knows the entrances to that unknowable society. :)
