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.
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.
