Hackers Stretch Their Wings, Deface Chinese Government Site

Tyler Durden's picture


Team Greyhat has just hacked the website of the Jishou Audit Office, a Chinese government property. Following Saturday's announcement by the Anonymous hacker syndicate of "civil disobedience" until Ben Bernanke steps down, how long before some US government websites are defaced in a comparable way? And just how hackerproof is Fedwire anyway?

Haiti is the complete product of what monetarism can do TO a country given complete range to pillage a nation.  (and in recent decades, with America's blessing)

If monetarism had it's way, we'd all be 'Haiti's'.

Don't know why people would blame haiti for the hell foisted upon it.  One thing I do know, no matter WHO lives WHERE, if there is nothing but strife, ignorance and idiocy THEN rear their ugly heads.

Now we're supposed to believe we should let them rot because they are a product of monetarism? Sorry.

NerObama should be ashamed of how after a few photo-ops, he left them to literally rot.

Humans have been a "resource" in the corporate world for a long time.

Recently some humans have become an unwilling source for spare parts for other humans.

Someday, we'll be eating each other and not even questioning it.

Not joking. I actually started a story on the subject a Christmas time but never posted it. It was really grim, but probably close to the truth. Hard to call it fiction, after a while.

"... Then there is Mother Shipton, a mystic from around 1520. Her prophesy speaks a problematic "dragon" that occurs when Gabriel stands on the land and sea and blows his trumpet, the dragon then encircles the earth 6 times, the last trip serving as an omen for catastrophic earth this passage, it doesn't take a whole bunch of imagination to match this up with the Bots predictions.

In nineteen hundred and twenty six Build houses light of straw and sticks. For then shall mighty wars be planned And fire and sword shall sweep the land.

When pictures seem alive with movements free When boats like fishes swim beneath the sea, When men like birds shall scour the sky Then half the world, deep drenched in blood shall die

For those who live the century through In fear and trembling this shall do. Flee to the mountains and the dens To bog and forest and wild fens.

For storms will rage and oceans roar When Gabriel stands on sea and shore And as he blows his wondrous horn Old worlds die and new be born.

A fiery Dragon will cross the sky Six times before this earth shall die Mankind will tremble and frightened be For the sixth heralds in this prophecy.

For seven days and seven nights Man will watch this awesome sight. The tides will rise beyond their ken To bite away the shores and then

The mountains will begin to roar And earthquakes split the plain to shore. And flooding waters, rushing in Will flood the lands with such a din

That mankind cowers in muddy fen And snarls about his fellow men. He bares his teeth and fights and kills And secrets food in secret hills And ugly in his fear, he lies To kill marauders, thieves and spies. Man flees in terror from the floods And kills, and rapes and lies in blood And spilling blood by mankind's hands Will stain and bitter many lands. And when the Dragon's tail is gone, Man forgets, and smiles, and carries on To apply himself -- too late, too late For mankind has earned deserved fate."

"Yikes! Ejected radioactive steam pumped into the jet stream and circling the globe would indeed be like a fiery dragon. How interesting that Shipton also saw atmospheric phenomenon as a harbinger which immediately precedes catastrophic geologic earth changes. "

These guys are backbone engineers. They can decipher bit by bit what they want. Nothing is safe. Given enough computing power and time they can decrypt any cipher. Throw in a lil' Government software/networking and you pretty much just have to decode the bits into UTF8 english readable characters and... for the most part, you're done.

Errrm  ...  OK, 'splain to me how this works, please?

I'm a wee bit confused, since the basic theories of cryptography prove mathematically that sufficiently large ciphers would require more computational power to decrypt than actually exists on the planet.

Sure, with infinite computing power, anything is possible.  No one actually has infinite computing power at their disposal, so your argument is moot.

Bullshit.  Software engineer here who is a security guru in my spare time and provide security infrastructure ...

If my cipher hash is sufficiently large enough and the bit swap algo complex enough, I'll give you every computer in the world, every hacker in the world, and 1 year to crack it ... it won't happen.  Hell, I'd even give you 50 years ... still won't be cracked.  Most hacks are:

1.  Shitty, weak ciphers ...

2.  Former admins who left backdoors ...

3.  OS and other software exploits that can be overcome with the right security professional ...

While I'm basically in agreement with you, it is becoming less true by the day, as "cracks" are becoming nothing more than queries into pre-generated hash tables. I'm no expert, but apparently large hashes can even be broken into smaller pieces to aid in saving processing cycles for the parts that do need to be cracked?

As for giving someone 50 years and every computing resource on the planet, well that's just as much BS as you're refuting, as it is classic linear thinking, while the model is not. The next 50 years will provide as much technological change as the previous 1000 (if not more, assuming we don't go dark in 2012).

In other words, the singularity approaches.

If you truly understood cryptography as well as I do, you'd realize that 50 years wouldn't be enough time to crack a sufficiently large cipher with every supercomputer in the world ... even if you doubled the processing power and # of computers every year for 50 years ... the math just is. Granted, no one creates ciphers or algos to this difficulty for hackers ... on that we can agree.

"And to the large hash broken into smaller pieces" is a fundamental misunderstanding of the type of hash I'm referencing ...

"As for giving someone 50 years and every computing resource on the planet, well that's just as much BS as you're refuting, as it is classic linear thinking,"

This is wrong. The difficulty of breaking an encryption code is not linear with the length of the key. Encrypters can add bits to the keys faster than you can add CPU's. I know catch phrases like "singularities" and "classic linear thinking" are cool, edgy, and romantic. But they are about as meaningful as "brown is the new black" or "that is so 90's" or "men just don't get it" or "denial ain't a river in egypt." They are intended as argument enders thru coolness despite their lack of any meaning.

It's kind of like trying to end an argument about database normalization by saying "yeah, but I have an Apple computer." I'll concede you must be way cooler and deeper than folks with mere Windows computers. But it has nothing to do with whether you are right.

I haven't done the research, but the recent shutdown of internet in Egypt has changed my views of the feasibility of this: would it be possible to censor content on the internet via technical avenues? It is obvious they have ability to do so with coercive and indirect means but can it be done through brute force? Basically can the government do anything better than a DoS?

cougar_w's picture

[*ahem* Professor Cat puts on his bifocals for lecture]

Censorship and shutdown are different things.

Censorship is killing off types of discussions. With packet sniffer technology you can read emails and notice key words and you could then block those emails (a spam filter does this) but a lot of discussion you might want to supress doesn't involve key words (example: "I think our current bank system needs to change completely, let's meet at 3 to set fire to them") But these days a lot of content isn't even in emails but in images (example, the collected works of WB7) and videos. We do not have technology to interpret the contents of binaries like that.

So you cannot really censor the Internet unless you nuke entire content types. The technology simply isn't there to read them.

However you can indeed block entire content by type (email, MIME-encapsulated email, streaming media, etc) and delivery protocol (FTP, HTTP, SMTP, IRC etc). And likewise you can shut down the Internet one content type at a time. Doing either involves reading packets at the edges where the pipes enter an entire country. You can then filter out packets that support the content you don't want, or that originate from Internet domains you intend to block, or that are headed for internal destinations you intend to starve for information. This is perfectly feasible where the country has a small Internet foot print with few entry points; you simply park a gateway or packet sniffer at the co-lo where the wire comes in and smack packets around. It's really easy.

This is much harder when a nation has a lot of providers, many pipes, and a lot of traffic. Not impossible just very very hard. With current technology, probably not feasible (and I know something about this technology). But technology could catch up or the task could be made simpler by nationalizing communications and shutting off providers to create fewer pipes. Politically difficult, maybe nearly impossible, but technically do-able. The US is one dictatorial regime or declaration of martial law away from all that becoming possible.

But as the Egyptian showed us, the Internet ain't all that. You can get information in and out via cell phone call to a friend, via USB thumb drive, and via the contents of laptop computers, tablets and cell phone storage. It's slower but it only takes one really striking image, video or document to turn the tide. As was famously said and I here paraphrase, "never underestimate the broadband inherent in a station-wagon full of [DVDs] hurtling across the country."

I'm not worried at all.

Thanks prof. The question (I think) was about whether content could be censored.

In many, if not most areas, broadband access goes through 1-3 major providers.

These providers could, as you pointed out, sniff and block content, even modify it as it passes through.

More simply, they could block content by domain/certain pages.

There are many ways to do it.

The average joe would not be able to see censored content. You might with your mad skillz, and access to root control of virtual servers in multiple countries, but not joe.


If you're talking about blocking communication, that's a whole different ballgame.

"country with a small internet footprint"

You described my country of residence perfectly.  Two ISP's who just consolidated under one roof.  Plenty of Singaporean and Russian technicians.  The only email allowed is "gmail".  No to yahoo.mail, hotmail, etc.  No to any website that has "blog" in its name.  No to YouTube.

A SOCKS proxy can get around it, but (I'm no expert, just a user) I believe a minimum bandwidth is required to access, e.g., your-freedom servers.  The bandwidth for the country seems to be modulated, so at times I cannot make a connection with YF so as to be able to access my email or certain news sites which are periodically blocked (BBC, NYT).

They also block Skype and Yahoo Messenger, but allow Pfingo.

And on various occasions they simply shut the whole net down for days on end.

Oh, one more thing...over beers one night I chatted with two Russian computer types who are under contract with the local government.  One claimed to have a program that can block porn by reading the binary code of the image.  Too many of the same values in the same area apparently suggests something uniform like naked skin.  Whether it works or not I don't know, but they are getting paid, so what the heck.

Thanks for the feedback. More people need to understand what is really happening out there in the Void.

a program that can block porn by reading the binary code of the image. 

Yes indeed. I've heard of those before. Wouldn't be too hard to code that up so I assume it exists. But notice that it's a really blunt instrument and would be the same a blocking people from boarding a plane because of the language they speak. You don't understand them, they might be talking about terrorist tactics, you can't allow that, so you block everyone speaking Italian (just to pick one :)

Works best in a police state, where people have given up on the basics.

And it's easy money, because the client is just trying to convince someone higher up that they have a unique solution to a difficult problem. The real problem with a lot of these projects is not that they fail, but that they provide coverage for someone with a bad idea. There are always bad ideas, there are always people who promise things they can/should not deliver on, and the intersection is Big Bux.

yes clearly...being opposed to bombing children in their homes is obviously anti-semitic.

good grief...why must it always come to this?

If they could find some kind of real account as to how much gold was actually in Fort Knox, or how short Comex is, I would consider that a boon to mankind.

You're childish and beneath ZH if you think internet rebellion is insignificant. Digital warfare is what is in store, and will decide who wins... not guns and tanks.

This seems to be the only way left to protest because if you try to do it the old fashioned way they just put up barricades and spend more of your money!

Keep it up Anon


for how they spend your money not listening see:


"South Yorkshire Police's £2m operation to deal with protesters at the Sheffield Liberal Democrat conference has been criticised as "over the top"."

"To be paying £2m of taxpayers' money for a security fence of that nature plus thousands of police and police vans, we don't think that's necessary."

Maxkeiser is down.  ZH is probably next... unless it is one of the tools of the kleptogarchs.

And we all thought we were smarter than those in control.  TROLLS = TOOLS?

Is this not OBVIOUS that nothing is save/safe minus the handshake, eye to eye contact and reality?

Set aside all of the WMR NSA conspiracy theory stuff about hackers. Can anything be hacked? Yes.

What are the keys that you need?:

What's your objective?

Your code writing skill


Time and support

No suprise that these will only continue. Just keep in mind who's to blame if the Fed or the NYSE does get hacked.

SOooooo, these guys said they were miffed with the US government/financial system for being naughty and were gonna beat them up. THEN they screw with China. China, however, should not be trifled with at this time due to the help needed with Japan and the large holdings of US National debt. Not to say the Chinamens have not messed with our stuff, and maybe pay back is fair play. However timing is always important and the timing of this is not good.

Anyone who would discount efforts by Anonymous as “a fizzle,” or “much less than expected,” can’t know the history of the expertise involved.  A brief look at the shambles of HBGary, a once highly touted expert in cyberwar and malware, would demonstrate how shortsighted it is to underestimate Anonymous.

When someone is willing to help with the truth, they should be praised.  Because this is where it starts.

On the other hand (just to be fair) a toilet paper company, and a glorified bookstore managed to stave off Anonymous attacks. 

I do look forward to Anonymous promptly taking down something other than the goon support of the PTB. I mean, all the 'talent' at HBGary will just be redeployed to other firms, like a Catholic priest who gets a leettle too close to his flock.

Like Wikileaks and Assange, these guys are too immature to even knife their way through a wet paper back with a bowie.  How about this:  hack the page and rather than putting some gay-ass skulls up there, put something that is informative, objects and refutes said website.

Oh yeah, after yesterday, I seriously see BofA shaking in their boots.  For such a 'high impact' and red carpet announce it all certainly fell flat-footed.

Meanwhile, there are those, such as ZH, myself, Denninger, Mish, among many, many others, that fight with fact to back refute.

You think gay-ass skulls are cool?  Get yourself a Tap Out tshirt.

You may think this is funny or beneficial toward the cause of liberty. But you better recognize right now that the more hacking goes on, the faster the governments are going to lay down a strict iron fist of control online. The moment a prominent US government website is hacked, the crusade of anti-free internet legislation and publicity is going to escalate and become active.

For some, that is probably the intention; and I don't mean as a "false flag" operation.

Sun Tsu says, "On desperate ground, fight". This is generally interpreted to be an acknowledgment that, on certain types of terrain, if you attempt to rereat, you are likely to lose your entire force. Having a water feature at your back, for example – armies routinely disintegrate when attempting a retreat across a water feature, however modest. 

Some people believe that their opponents in Big Government are on "deadly ground", and any loss will mortally wound them. So they press the fight. 

They may be early. And they may pay a high price for that. 

But they are not wrong.
