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.
