Darfur needs help, not malware…

Published by at 8:24 am under Chinese Malware,Hacker Organization,Nationalism


An interesting article in the Washington Post this morning about China-based hackers targeting a group of Darfur supporters called “Save Darfur Coalition”.  The article indicates that the Save Darfur Coalition is critical of the PRC role in Darfur. 

 The allegation fits a near decade-old pattern of cyber-espionage and cyber-intimidation by the Chinese government against critics of its human rights practices, experts said. It comes as calls for a boycott of the 2008 Beijing Olympics have been mounting since China’s crackdown on Tibetan protesters last week. “

This reminds me of the targeted attacks on members of Fa1un G0ng reported by Maarten Van Horenbeeck.  Also see Maarten’s CCC presentation here.  Heike reported on Maarten’s presentation earlier.
