Anonymous hacks hundreds of Chinese government sites


Recommended Posts

Summary: Anonymous has hacked hundreds of Chinese government websites. Some sites were just defaced, but others have had admin accounts, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses posted publicly.

The hacktivist group Anonymous now has a Chinese branch. An Anonymous China Twitter account was created late last month, has been endorsed by the YourAnonNews Twitter account, which by the way has over 562,000 followers now, and the individuals behind it have gone to work. Boy have they been busy. Hundreds of Chinese government websites have been hacked and defaced in the span of a few days. A handful have also had their admin accounts, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses posted publicly.

A long Pastebin post lists all the websites that were targeted. It contains 327 websites in total, but an updated list, also on Pastebin, brings that number to 485. Most of these websites are operational once again, but many have been defaced again after they were brought back. Not all of them were hacked and defaced; some were treated with more viciousness then others.

A separate Pastebin explains why Anonymous China is executing these attacks. The message is in both English and Chinese. Here’s the English version,

Hello, we are Anonymous.

All these years the Chinese Government has subjected their people to unfair laws and unhealthy processes.

People, each of you suffers from tyranny of that regime.

Fight for justice, fight for freedom, fight for democracy!

In the defaces and leaks in this day, we demonstrate our revolt to the Chinese system. It has to stop! We aren’t asking you for nothing, just saying to protest, to revolt yourself, to be the free person you always want to be! So, we are writing this message to tell you that you should protest, you should revolt yourself protesting and who has the skills for hacking and programming and design and other “computer things” come to our IRC: http://2.webchat.anonops.com/ channel: #GlobalRevolution .

We are Anonymous.

We are Legion.

We do not forgive.

We do not forget.

Expect us.

Here are the relevant Anonymous China tweets from March 30, 2012:

Mass Deface by Anonymous China (pastebin) -> http://pastebin.com/f7nFSFgq

#China and all #World we are just getting started.

Anonymous China is not affiliated with the GlobalBlackout Joke. #lulz

Thank you to all the support around the World, by Anonymous and ‘non-Anonymous’.

All the defaces (in the mass deface) nongovernmental are to spread consconsciousness even to the webmasters of their websites.

Update: mass deface 480+ (.gov included) http://pastebin.com/uqKbmfmm

Message from Anonymous China to the chinese government and the chinese people. http://pastebin.com/hQsQUfHV #GlobalRevolution

The next day, on March 31, it got more serious. Yet another Pastebin post detailed the hack of zssf.gov.cn. This wasn’t just a hack resulting defacement though. No. This time, phone numbers and e-mails were leaked. First off, two accounts and their passwords were posted. Next up, 548 phone numbers were posted, likely belonging to Chinese officials. This was followed by 860 e-mail addresses. No passwords associated with these e-mail addresses were posted.

Here are the tweets from that day:

Chinese Government, prepare yourself again. ;)

匿名周圍的世界正義戰鬥。 \\ #Anonymous around thw world fighting for justice. #ExpectUs and expect Anonymous China, we’re just starting…

hree of the sites were defaced again more recently. As you can see in the screenshot at the top of this post, at the time of writing the first and second sites still have the images, text, as well as a song playing in the background (Baba O’Riley by The Who). There’s even a link to tips on how to bypass state censorship, hosted on the hacked websites on a separate webpage. It is essentially a copy of a post you can view yourself over at hacktivist.me.

The Anonymous message to the Chinese government and the Chinese people that was posted on these two sites, as well as hundreds of others, is in full below:

Hi all !

Message to Chinese government :

All these years, the Chinese Communist government has subjected its People to unfair laws and unhealthy processes.

Dear Chinese government, you are not infallible, today websites are hacked, tomorrow it will be your vile regime that will fall.

So expect us because we do not forgive, never. What you are doing today to your Great People, tomorrow will be inflicted to you.

With no mercy.

Nothing will stop us, nor your anger nor your weapons.

You do not scare us, because you cannot afraid an idea.

Message to Chinese People :

Each of you suffers from the tyranny of that regime which knows nothing about you. We are with you.

With you here and now. But also tomorrow and the coming days so promising for your freedom. We will never give up.

Don’t loose hope, the revolution begins in the heart.

The silence of all other countries highlights the lack of democracy and justice in China. It’s unbearable.

We must all fight for your freedom.

At the time of writing, the third site now simply has a message (in Chinese) saying it is under maintenance. I believe the owners have regained control again.

Last but certainly not least, tchjbh.gov.cn was hacked last night and the results were posted on Pastebin. One admin user account and password, four phone numbers, and one e-mail address were leaked.

Here are the tweets between April 1 and now:

Chinese hackers , programmers, etc and hackers all over the world, we invite you to be part of Anonymous China, fighting for justice!

Haoh defaces and leaks coming… Today, … Tomorrow, … And forever!

http://cdcbd.gov.cn/ http://www.qnwqdj.gov.cn/ http://www.bbdj.gov.cn/ redefaced lol, your security still suck.

Leaks coming … Chinese government today, attacked again.

http://www.tchjbh.gov.cn/ hacked by Anonymous China. Leak ->

These attacks seem to have been fueled by China’s state media announcing an extensive crackdown on dozens of websites, penalising two popular social networks and detaining six people for spreading rumours of a coup d’état.

Well I wouldn't be surprised if America starts funding AnonChina. Can't say China didn't have it coming. However, for Asians to get hacked, now that's an accomplishment.

China admits Anonymous hacks

After Anonymous hacked hundreds of Chinese government, company, and other general websites, China has acknowledged the attacks. Meanwhile, Anonymous China has not stopped its onslaught.

Earlier this week I wrote about how the hacktivist group Anonymous has a new Chinese branch, Anonymous China, which has been very active since it launched its Twitter account on March 30, 2012. The group has hacked and defaced hundreds of Chinese government, company, and other general websites over the last week. A few targets have had their administrator accounts, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses posted publicly. Last but not least, on many of the hacked sites, the group even posted tips for how to circumvent the Great Firewall of China. Surprisingly, the Chinese government has acknowledged the attacks.

While Anonymous was not specifically mentioned, it’s obvious what China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs was referring to during a briefing on Thursday, given the events during the last week.

“First of all, China’s Internet is open to all, users enjoy total freedom online. China has gained 500 million netizens and 300 million bloggers in a very short period of time, which shows the attraction and openness of China’s Internet,” spokesman Hong Lei said in a statement, according to CNN. “Secondly, the Chinese government manages the Internet according to law and regulations. Thirdly, certain reports prove again that China is a victim of internet hacker attacks.”

Anonymous China has not relented. Since my last article, here’s what the group has been up to.

First off, the group confirmed what many have thought for a while: they are not Chinese and they are not based in China. At least, most of them are not. This is why the text in Chinese is usually poorly translated (probably using Google Translate or Bing Translator). Anonymous China is working on fixing that. Here are the tweets that followed my last article:

Who want to translate what we do for Chinese, contact: [email protected] And for safety, anyone will know that were you to translate.

For who doesn’t understand the part “anyone will know”, it’s ‘anyone will never’ :)

Our new email is [email protected]

All the people that couldn’t send the mails, try again for the new email. All that could, don’t send.

ReTweet! #GlobalREvolution coming! Fight for your rights!

Then it was back to business as usual. The Chinese government website tygtzy.gov.cn was hacked and defaced, though it appears to be back and operational at the time of writing. Then the group teamed up with some other hackers and targeted two Ugandan websites: unbs.go.ug and jlos.go.ug. The first one had one username and password posted on PasteBay while the second had two usernames and passwords posted, also on PasteBay.

Here are the tweets about the most recent attacks:

So Chinese Gov hacked again :D let’s see what we have today ;)

http://tygtzy.gov.cn/ hacked differently :D message in chinese \\\ lulz

http://tygtzy.gov.cn/index_en.htm and here you have the hacked english version hahah

http://jlos.go.ug/ hacked by @_f0ws3r , Anonymous China and @MalSec Leak:

@YourAnonNews in the deface http://tygtzy.gov.cn/ this time with other song :D

Chinese people, protest, stand up, wake up!

On a related note, I found it interesting that the group has started using pastebay.net instead of pastebin.com (see also: Pastebin to hunt for hacker pastes, Anonymous cries censorship). This may be a coincidence, but we’ll see soon enough if other Anonymous factions abandon Pastebin as well.
