Anonymous China Defaces, Steals Information from Almost 500 Chinese Gov/Corporate Websites

Anonymous China declares war on Chinese government for Internet censorship
The Chinese government was recently targeted by newly formed Anonymous China, where nearly 500
websites were hit
Anonymous China, which is hacker group Anonymous' Chinese branch, defaced and stole information from 485 websites that are linked to Chinese companies or the Chinese government.
Anonymous posted the status of their attacks on their new Twitter, @AnonymousChina. While some webpages were just defaced, others had information like email addresses, phone numbers and administrator accounts stolen.
"Dear Chinese government, you are not infallible, today
websites are hacked
, tomorrow it will be your vile regime that will fall," said Anonymous China in post that described their goals for their "Global Revolution" campaign. "What you are doing today to your Great People, tomorrow will be inflicted to you. With no mercy."
The Chinese government places restrictions on its users, blocking certain websites like Facebook and Twitter. Political topics deemed sensitive are often blocked as well. Anonymous China is working to rebel against the government's censorship on social networking websites, news sites and file-sharing sites.
"All these years the Chinese government has subjected their people to unfair laws and unhealthy processes," said Anonymous China in the post. "People, each of you suffers from tyranny of that regime.
"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."
The attacks against the Chinese government began March 30, 2012.
China has participated in several hacks of its own against the U.S., such as the
recent RSA intrusion
, which resulted in stolen information on the proprietary security algorithm. Chinese involvement was also suspected in many other hacks, such as those on
last year as well as
two U.S. satellites
in 2007 and 2008.
