Chinese hacker “Milk Rebellion”

Mongolian Cow Milk

As the scandal over melamine laced food products widens, Chinese hackers seem to be taking up the cause to punish guilty corporations.  When we first reported the defacement of the Sanlu Milk Company website, 50 children had suffered kidney stones due to the additive melamine.  Melamine is not meant for human consumption but if added to food stocks, will make it appear to be higher in protein.  This is the same additive responsible for the death of many pets last year.  The newest reports indicate that there are now over 6,000 children effected and  three deaths.

Chinese hackers have also stepped up their efforts to protest against the blatant disregard for public safety.  The latest corporation to suffer the wrath of the hacker community was the Mongolian Milk Corporation:

“When an infant with kidney stones lies weeping in a hospital bed, can the factory owners intuitively sense the condemnation?  In order to gain profit you have gone so far as to devastate these young lives!  I demand that the Mongolian Cow [Milk Corporation] delete all of its honorary lies from the official website and post a public apology!”

No, the Chinese hackers have not called this the “Milk Rebellion” but since it is getting very close to internal protesting, it is what I have dubbed it.

    Another interesting twist in “Kidney Stone Gate” is that Sanlu allegedly paid Baidu to censor negative articles. This link contains some graphic images and may not be considered safe for work…
