Chinese hacker hits new low…continues to dig

Published by at 6:47 pm under Evil and/or Stupid,Uncategorized

On the afternoon of May 31st, the Nanning Public Security Bureau Cyber Police received a report from the Guangxi Earthquake Bureau that a hacker had invaded and altered their website.

The FAKE message left by the hacker read:

“The violent earthquake that struck Wenchuan, Sichuan…we grieve for our fellow citizens who perished in the great Wenchuan, Sichuan, earthquake. In the near future, a major earthquake registering 9+ will hit the Guangxi area. Request that city residents make preparations as soon as possible.

(Emphasis added)

Guangxi Earthquake Website

Cooperation between the cyber police from six provinces, spanning a three-day period, finally located the hacker responsible for the fraudulent message in Jiangsu.

Cyber Police Investigation

On 4 June, police arrested a further unidentified suspect named Chen who made a full confession.

Congratulations to Chinese hacker Chen, I had to add a new category to cover this event. Posted under Evil and/or Stupid…qualified as Evil and Stupid.

    Eastwood,

    You actually came close. A little more was contained in the article and U/I Chen claimed he had done it out of curiosity, play and self-satisfaction. Nice guy. What could it hurt, right?

    [...] Tracking him down and releasing detention clips to the Chinese media is one of these emblematic cyber crime cases the Chinese Cyber Police would do anything to solve. Would they also be allocating the same resources to another incident if it wasn’t the momentum and the boldness of this hacker to do what he did in times when China’s shaken by earthquakes? [...]

    Perhaps if the Cyber Police were really so good they’d catch some of those tricky devils trying to hack other peoples sites outside of China? Oh wait – they’re probably just victims of cyber spoofers, we should have pity on them.
