Hacktivists claiming to hail from the Pakistan Cyber Army have defaced
over 400 Chinese government web sites and also hit in excess of 20
Bangladeshi government sites.
A hacker known as ‘Code Cracker’ is claiming responsibility for the
attack on the official web site of Xuchang City People’s Procuratorate
and a whopping 436 sub-domains, according to HackRead.
The domains were posted to hackers’ favourite Pastebin and all now
appear to have been taken offline, however there does not appear to have
been any explicit message left for the local government aside from a
generic Pakistan Cyber Army logo and the words “hello admin”.
This isn’t the first time the local government of the Henan province
city has been hit by cyber attack.
Back in September 2010 an Indonesian hacker known as Hmei7 apparently
defaced the Procuratorate site and as recently as last month DevilzSec
successfully did the same.
