Chinese hackers and baby formula

Published by at 4:36 am under Uncategorized

Chinese hackers alter Sanlu Corporation’s name to “Melamine Group

Baby formula produced by the Sanlu (Three deers) Corporation has resulted in another product safety recall. The formula contained Melamine, which is not intended for human consumption and caused kidney stones in more than fifty children.

FDA ALERT:Melamine found in baby formula made in China

Sanlu Group Co., China’s biggest milk powder producer, ordered the recall after more than 50 babies suffered kidney stones and one died, the official Xinhua News Agency said. It said tests found it was tainted with melamine, a chemical used in plastics.

On Friday afternoon, Chinese hackers broke into the Sanlu website and changed the name of the corporation from Sanlu to the “Melamine Group.” Is there a growing trend for Chinese hackers to protest internal problems? Something to watch.

    Did anyone take responsibility for it?

    The Dark Vistor staff is on the cutting edge of stories coming out of the mainland. Even mainstream media is giving coverage to this kind of stories, saw a brief here
    I am wondering if hackers on the mainland are increasingly taking domestic issues with an increased awareness that many don’t want to sit on the side lines of the media game in China heats up…what do you think???
