The Chinese hacker group that has been organizing to attack CNN has been identified as the “Revenge of the Flame.” They recently released a statement calling off the DDoS attack on CNN; however, it may have come too late to stop some of its members from going after the site. CNN has just filed a report stating that they had experienced an attack in an attempt to disrupt their website. For this reason, we will keep the clock up and see what happens tomorrow…it might not be over.

Statement from Revenge of the Flame:

In just three short days, our organization, the Revenge of the Flame, has grown large. First, I want to thank everyone for their strong sense of nationalistic responsibility. However, maybe we were too impetuous. We love our country! We will resist all anti-Chinese influences! However, we must choose the right way to come to the defense of our country, families and ourselves!!! After some core internal discussions, we have decided to temporarily cancel the 19th attack plan! The Revenge of the Flame organization still exists! Later we can be a computer discussion organization, we will study together for the day our country needs us! Our government and military will all mobilize! At that time, we will let those so-called foreign net-forces see! No matter where, China will never lose to them! We also have our net-forces! Perhaps at that time, our Revenge of the Flame will be the main strength! We all love our country! But, we must use sensible methods to defend our honor!

ATTENTION: Our original plan for 19 April has been canceled because too many people are aware of it and the situation is chaotic. At an unspecified date in the near future, we will launch the attack. We ask that everyone remain ready. I will repeat it again. At an unspecified date in the near future, we will launch the attack. We are only at present cancelling the attack. We could send out a notice on the day of the attack and have it completed in one day. The attack hasn’t been cancelled; it will be carried out on an unspecified day in the near future. I think everyone understands what we mean.

We hope that even more people with the Chinese national blood will join our actions. Only in unity is there strength. We are not individuals, we are a collective, and we are Chinese.

    In honesty I have no issues with china or it’s people I find them to be honorable in most ways
    I do have a problem with the chinese people that run organised crime and smuggle people etc.
    CNN as previously labeled our country a bloodbath due to the death of two tourist who crossed a war zone up north they are deserving of this attack godspeed
