They have conveniently broken down the groups by province and city:

Next, click on the area you are interested in (I chose Henan) and presto, hacker website from the region:

    You said that , ” I think it is important for people to understand how the PRC intelligence service operates.” Really think this track would be very helpful 4 us all visiting u r site.
    I did go on line an look at the reviews and how inexpensive one could buy such a interesting/fact filled helpful book…they did alot of research saving the likes of us hours of effort…
    Refering 2 Roger Faligot and Remi Kauffer titled “The Chinese Secret Service” that looks at the evolution of China’s Intel service from the time of Kang Sheng.
