CCTV’s official website was hacked for two hours and homepage was tampered CCTV’s official website was hacked for two hours and homepage was tampered(0)

Morning News (Reporter Yu Xiao) last night a lot of online users reported that the official website of China Central Television intermittently can not be logged in, WWW.CCTV.COM homepage was changed to a phone of European woman and till 20:20, it was fully restored. Since then reporter called many CCTV staff, but did not receive a positive response.

Yesterday, 8:05 p.m., reporters wanted to log on CCTV’s official website to watch today’s live broadcast notice of the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games, but was surprised to see WWW.CCTV.COM home had become an European women with watermark from” Xin Kuai Net” at the right corner. Later reporter saw at “SINA Micro-Blog (http://t.sina.com.cn)” and other forums that many users reported “CCTV official Web site has been hacked” and the earliest post was on 18:14, Attached screenshot was same as what reported saw.

Imitation Google, YouTube in China Imitation Google, YouTube in China(0)

YouTubecn.com offers videos from the real YouTube, which is blocked in China. The Google imitation is called Goojje and includes a plea for the U.S.-based Web giant not to leave China, after it threatened this month to do so in a dispute over Web censorship and cyberattacks.

The separate projects went up within a day of each other in mid-January, just after Google’s threat to leave.
“This should be an issue with Google’s intellectual property, also with China censorship,” said Xiao Qiang, director of the Berkeley China Internet Project at the University of California-Berkeley. “I cannot see how these sites can survive very long without facing these two issues.”

China’s National Copyright Administration has been cracking down on illegally run Web sites and this month issued a code of ethics, but no statement was posted on its Web site Thursday about the Google and YouTube imitations.

Xiao guessed that based on the amount of time and work needed to build such a site on top of Google’s data, Goojje had already been ready before the Google-China showdown started ? and that the founder or founders chose the name “Goojje” to get attention.

The names are a play on words. The second syllable of “Google” sounds like “older brother,” and the second syllable of “Goojje” sounds like “older sister” in Mandarin.

Xiao said if another copycat site like these emerges, it probably would be of Facebook — which is also blocked in China.

China’s Internet has become the world’s second largest source of personal information China’s Internet has become the world’s second largest source of personal information(0)

Senior Director of Marketing of the Symantec Consumer Business Unit, head of Asia Pacific and Japan marketing WU Youyou disclosed that, according to Symantec statistics that over one-fifth of worldwide Internet users globally will become victims of cyber crime, while China has become the second largest network of virus and breeding ground for crime after the United States, followed by Germany, the United Kingdom and Brazil. At present, in the black market transactions, a complete personal identification information is valued for 70 RMB, a credit card information has a value of 6.86 yuan. Wu said that in 2008 the average number of monthly attempted malicious code attacks globally intercepted by Symantec was more than 245 million, virus threats trend was increasing.

Senior manager of Symantec China Safety technology and Response Center – Bai Fan – introduced that, in China, cyber crime was characterized as “a shot, a change of place”, viruses and malware authors just wanted to obtain economic benefits without destroying computer hardware and normal use of systems, and they secretly sneaked into the user’s computer to steal information and then quickly fled, and quickly change the characteristics of the virus, more like a “thief” rather than “bandits”, but this hidden way of strong and diverse cyber crimes is harder to prevent.”

Bai Fan said since 2002 every year there were 20,000 new Internet threats, whereas under the current development situation, annual increase of the number of threats till 2010 will reach 3 million, the traditional security and antivirus software working mode is hard to catch up with the speed of the virus.

China warns of Skype phishing China warns of Skype phishing(0)

Many Skype users in China have recently received fake messages saying they had won a prize and directing them to a look-alike version of the program’s Web site to claim it, said the National Computer Network Emergency Response Technical Team (CERT) on its Web site.

Phishing has been a major problem in China but the most targeted local sites have included banks and an online auction site that is similar to eBay, said Miao Deyu, a spokesman for Chinese antivirus software maker Antiy Labs.

Chinese companies and government organizations last year formed an antiphishing group which has identified and helped close at least 8,000 phishing sites, according to local media and Miao.

China’s CERT received just 1,200 reports of phishing last year, and it “resolved” just 320 of them, it said in an earlier report. Among the incidents reported to the group, Yahoo, eBay and banks like Wachovia and HSBC were the most commonly mimicked Web sites, a sign that many phishing sites hosted in China target Internet users abroad.

Western experts have said that China-hosted domains known to be malicious often remain up and have called for quicker action by local registrars and authorities to shut them down.

Stop Windows sales in China Stop Windows sales in China(0)

The order Monday said Microsoft exceeded its rights under licensing agreements with Zhongyi Electronic Ltd., a Beijing company that developed Chinese character fonts used in the software.

Microsoft must stop selling versions of Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 with Zhongyi’s fonts, the Beijing People’s No. 1 Intermediate Court said in its ruling, a copy of which was released by Zhongyi.

Microsoft said it would appeal. The company said its license agreements with the plaintiff cover its use of the fonts.

Zhongyi said its agreement with Microsoft allowed the Seattle-based software producer to use its fonts only in Windows 95 and they were added to later products without permission.

China supercomputer China supercomputer(0)

China’s National University of Defense Technology, a military academy, unveiled the machine that would have ranked fourth in the most recent Top500 list of the world’s fastest supercomputers, Xinhua news agency said. The supercomputer, named Milky Way, can theoretically perform more than one million billion calculations per second. That figure, measured in “flops,” or floating operation points per second, would make it China’s first petaflop-class machine.

The machine’s data has been submitted for ranking in the Top500 list, which is next due out in November, Xinhua said, citing faculty at the university in China’s inland Hunan province. The computer will be used for bio-medical computing, seismic data processing during oil exploration and for the design of “aerospace vehicles,” it said.

The computer has over 11,000 microprocessors from Intel and Advanced Micro Devices and cost at least 600 million yuan ($88 million) to build, the agency said. It will be moved to a supercomputing center in the northeastern city of Tianjin later this year.

Dawning, a Chinese government-backed hardware maker, is separately designing a petaflop supercomputer it hopes to deploy next year. That system is planned to use Godson CPUs, also known by the name Loongson, a domestic chip line designed with government funding to expand China’s pool of domestically owned technology.

China-made CPUs will also be added to the Milky Way supercomputer in the future to further boost its speed, Xinhua said.
