That was my original title for this article but it has changed, now I consider
her the Keyser Soze (The Usual Suspects) of Chinese hackers. I have gone through so many websites trying to figure out her past and just who she is that it has become a blur. She is light, she is dark, she is mean, she is sweet, she is 26, she isn’t nearly that old…etc. It is as hard to get a handle on her as it is to figure out the correct spelling of Keyser Soze, if that is indeed how it is spelled. Anyway, I decided to just let you know what is not in contention and cut out all the other noise:
She was a member of the Six Golden Flowers until they broke up. The line
underneath the picture at the top says:
“Don’t bring up the Six Golden Flowers with me again, I am developing on my own.”

She goes by the names Dark Angel (黑暗天使) and Heihaitang (黑海棠). As always with Chinese hackers, the meat to bone comes with the current website they run. And, what she is doing now is using her reputation to sell hacker classes…just like every other Chinese hacker of any weight.
She offers 181 individual classes for about US $17 each (no deadline) and a year long structured course of 14 classes at US $170 (internal programs are free of charge).
