Last April, a politically motivated Chinese blog called “The Dark Visitor” rallied hackers to launch a DDoS attack on CNN.com for its coverage of the relationship between China and Tibet.

Just CRAP!!!

    Wow! What left field did that statement come from? Dr. Nucci must not actually read this blog or he would have known better then to say something like that.

    Did you contact the author or the editors? This is pretty lame.

    I just emailed the author to tell him he’s confused.

    Sigh… why bother getting upset over this? Let their ignorance be their bliss :)

    I am suprised Dr. Nucci, Narus and those that use NarusInsight supercomputers like NSA don’t have time to provide better commentary. Maybe the team at Dark Visitor is producing better results than Narus can….you know those academic types don’t like anyone to get the jump on them…

    On the topic of evil and or stupid some media like
    The Epoch Times discovered a fourth astronaut’s voice in the spacecraft giving orders and helping in the orbital module on the
    Shenzhou VII
    Should it prove true, well this catagory you provided on your site: evil and stupid should win some prize….

    The Doctor has spoken! Now proceed to the internment camp for reeducation.

    Narus: Just because our products are overpriced crap, doesn’t mean our stupid fascists for customers know that.

    I’d stay far away from the “epoch” if I were you… don’t wanna get involved with falun gong propaganda now

    Hey guys,

    Sorry, I took the family out camping this weekend right after posting this blurb.

    Yes, I did send an e-mail to the good Dr. asking that he update and explain. Richard, thank you for doing the same.

    Not really that upset but…how much research could you have done to get it this far off the mark?

    Eastwood, yeah, I’m starting to get a little tired of the “epoch” spamming that is going on here. I don’t mind people giving an alternate opinion, or facts but I don’t want something agenda driven. This site is about Chinese hackers, period!

    …and at times Segways-of-Death, as the mood strikes. :)

    Supranamaya Ranjani has a blog post on the Narus site that got the facts right.


    Not sure what happened to this more recent article.

    Seems they don’t talk or read their own blog.
