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.”

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

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.
