Chinese Hackers Planning Massive DDoS Attack This Weekend Against CNN?
Chinese hackers plotting DDoS against CNN?

Submitted by Paul McNamara on Fri, 04/18/2008


Press and blog reports are emerging this morning of an impending DDoS attack this weekend against CNN by Chinese hackers reportedly upset with the network's coverage of the relationship between China and Tibet.

There's some indication that CNN's site may already be experiencing difficulties.

From The Dark Visitor, a blog that tracks "the inside world of Chinese hacker":

Many more Chinese sites, not just hacker, starting to call for the DDOS attack on CNN. Also they are starting to solidify their plans. Here are the details from one posting on the Guilin University of Electronic Technology bulletin board:

Attack will start on 19 April 2008, at 8:00 pm

DDOS attack on www.cnn.com

The DDOS attack is going to last over three hours.

They need a large number of compromised computers to carry out the attack and are requesting everyone's support in putting to together the number needed.

There have been reports already of Internet users having difficulty accessing the CNN site.

Arbor Networks reports that it is monitoring nothing significant at the moment in terms of recent attacks directed at CNN, although there have been some.

These attacks were very small; they barely registered, so it's hard to say that they're the massive onslaught that we may see this weekend. It's possible this is entirely unrelated - a lot of hackers try to bring down major websites like this every day.

Coincidentally, or at least apparently so, CNN recently did a detailed profile of an organization of Chinese hackers:

They operate from a bare apartment on a Chinese island. They are intelligent 20-somethings who seem harmless. But they are hard-core hackers who claim to have gained access to the world's most sensitive sites, including the Pentagon.

The leader of these Chinese hackers says there "is always a weakness" on networks that allows cyber break-ins.
