Anonymous hacktivists attack Chinese military

Smashing the Great Firewall
Wed Apr 11 2012, 09:43

HACKTIVISTS claiming to be Anonymous are hammering away at China's Great Firewall and going after its military, defence industry and geopolitical skullduggery.

Some attacks have already been dismissed. Earlier this week the Chinese military contractor CEIEC said that claims of successful hacks were false.

"The information reported is totally groundless, highly subjective and defamatory," said the company spokesperson in a formal statement.

But the group keeps posting up new scalps and new chunks of information from Chinese internet properties.

One Pastebin release boasts that it has "Fresh documents from the Chinese related to Afghanistan US ops which is still received by Petrovietnam chinese insiders and sent to Ukraine officials".

The information posted there and authored by Hardcore Charlie draws the US Army into the fray and admits that some data might have been deleted. It also warns that the rabbit hole might go deeper.

"Hola lulz, these commie bulliez try to shut us down by cleaning up the mess and deleting our stuff, Chinese try to cover up their fuckup by hiding the documents about their operations in Russia and Ukraine, US army with their effort to fight terrorism covers up their involvement in this scheme by shutting us down," it says.

"They do not want us know about Military information about afghanistan cargos being traded to terrorists in Ukraine and Russia as payment for their services, behind this is the Wan Bao corporation trying to get stake in Ukraine and Russia copper mine deals. Its all about money folks and US gives no fuck since they are involved too you know."

A recent release promises that more CEIEC information will follow soon. Also promised for the future is smashing the Great Firewall of China. This is not likely to be an easy task, and Anonymouschina is not setting itself any deadlines.

"Chinese people, world people, ... reporters too, #GFW we all want it dead, wont be easy... Don't expect in next week, or whatever lol," it said in a message yesterday. µ
