The government of China seems to accidentally have revealed how the country is secretly engaged in cyber warfare. In spite of the China’s denials that the country ever launches Internet attacks, some piece of military propaganda was showed on TV, revealing how a Chinese military university is engaged in cyber warfare against the US.
The broadcast documentary was supposed to express praise to the wisdom and judgment of the country’s military strategists and the traditional feathering of the China' biggest customer, the United States. The film made an attempt to paint the United States as an implacable cyber aggressor.
Nevertheless, shots of some apparent Chinese cyber attack somehow appeared in the documentary. The screenshots in question are seen for 6 seconds only, showing custom-built China-based software which was apparently launching some Internet attack against the main site of the Falun Gong. The attack is seen to use a compromised IP address of a university of the United States.
The screenshots proved that the software in question was developed in the Electrical Engineering University of China's People's Liberation Army. In other words, the screenshots were proof that the army was participating in coding cyber-attack software directed against a Chinese dissident group. In the video, the software shows a window saying "Choose Attack Target", where the operator types in the IP address and selects Falun Gong sites. After this the software shows dozens of Falun Gong sites, from which the operator chooses Minghui.org, the main service. Meanwhile, the IP address used (184.108.40.206) comes from the University of Alabama located in Birmingham.
The Chinese media reported that it was actually the first time people had seen the top Chinese military universities engaged in carrying out such research and developing software for Internet attacks. In addition, the screenshots in question prove that the Chinese are extending their persecution of Falun Gong abroad by attacking a civil website in the United States.
In response, the University of Alabama at Birmingham explained that the IP address actually belonged to a site decommissioned in 2001, as the service had been created against its rules. They also noted that the assumed purpose of the action showed in the video wasn’t to launch an attack from that site, but rather block access to the service.

|thanks Sam............appreciating your work...............keep it up bro .............!!!!!|
|lets than walmart and the republicans for this...|
they are the ones that allowed all the jobs and technology to be exported and stolen by china and still keep funding their government and military by buying chinese products instead of bringing the jobs back to americans and start to protect the country like they are supposed to nand not just protect corporate profits.
we all already knew china was hacking the US and now ther eis more proof...
the only question... how much proof does it take before the republicans stop letting all the american jobs and money keep funding the chinese?

|I have a gut feeling that this TV show is the chinese version of the BBC show Panorama. Whereby they twist the facts with very clever editing and downright lies. "Death on the rock" is a prime example where they had bribed witnesses to appear and testify to seeing things when they were not even there.|
|maybe the US should invoice china for any costs incurred due to their terrorism, hacking, spamming, and other costs from their illicit conduct.|
and while they're at it, get us our money back for all the defective junk we wasted our money on for things made in china that we had no choice to buy since their manufacturers used cheap labor and materials to make fast profits.
|how can they see with those squinted eyes?|
|china is now setting up a university for teaching cyber attacks....|
|those little yellow people .next rulers of the world sadly.they can afford to sell cheap stuff when they have such a bizzare regime.but there getting very clever.the us relies so much on china for cheap products the us cant say much.they have been given carte blanche from nearly all western powers .cheap capatilist mentality.|

|Make no mistake, China has already won, They own this country, why do you think we spent billions to bail out the finacial interests on Wall Street? China was on the phone every hour threatening the Fed because they own all of our Bonds... China has the most to loose if our economy completely colapses.. So why would they really care about hacking us?|
Just turn on Peer Guardian 2 to see how many pings you get per second and where from, THAT is an eye opener....

|bazzer1234: You don't put racial discriminatory or hateful words in this forum, okay? You got no right to hate people driving German engineering luxurious cars. The mentality balance is what we poor freebies needed. No matter what skin color you got, the color of your crap and the stinking smell are always the same. So what makes you think you got the right to despise other human race? Strongly suggest that you watch "Rise of The Planet of Apes", dude, then you might know that we all came from the same big species tree shown in "Avatar".|
|Don't worry about China, because its Communist government is already corrupted and rotten from the root, there's no way to reign the world from a rotten government. Besides, their rich and powerful people are part of the corruption and only occupied below 2%. The 98% Chinese regular mass population, like the 98% poor Americans and elsewhere in other countries are struggling to get by against the horrible inflation. They don't give crap to anything else. So rest assured there's no threat from China. The finger-pointing accusation is from American government to rip more budget spending on their military instead of their infrastructure rebuild. American government, the Republican Party and their military forces are the only three threats to world peace. Don't worry about the Democratic Party, they are just a bunch of free-ride big tax collectors and spenders.||
