    Talking 'Iranian Cyber Army' Hacks China's Main Search Engine

    Link

    The Wall Street Journal - January 12, 2010

    Baidu Inc., China's top search engine, was unavailable early Tuesday in China, and some Internet users reported seeing signs of an attack on the site by Iranian hackers.

    Baidu Inc., China's top search engine, was unavailable early Tuesday in China, and some Internet users reported seeing signs of an attack on the site by Iranian hackers.
    Users reported seeing a banner for the "Iranian Cyber Army," complete with an Iranian flag and a shattered Star of David, when they tried to access Baidu's home page Tuesday.
    Marten Strassburg, a Swedish citizen living in Beijing, said he saw the site defaced with the Iranian group's logos around 10:30 a.m. Beijing time. Mr. Strassburg and dozens of others posted screen shots of Baidu's defaced site online.
    It's good to see the Chinese get a taste of their own medicine.

    In these times of hacking and virtual subterfuge, you never know. It could be a false flag operation by another nation.

    You know it wasn't us, we didn't have a court order.
