In addition to the Epik hack that was attributed to the hacktivist collective, Anonymous (that we reported on, in our September 17th post)... It appears that those rascally Anonymi are at it once again. At the end of September, the Taiwan News reported that Anonymous had uploaded a pro-Taiwan Independence banner on a Chinese tourism promotion site. To wit...
TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The decentralized international hacktivist group Anonymous has hacked into a Chinese government tourism promotion website, where it uploaded Taiwan's national anthem, flag, and pro-Taiwan independence banner, among other items.
The hack apparently incorporated multiple links to various Anony-related files. The first link displayed the telltale emblem for Anonymous, a black suit and a question mark. The second link launched an audio file that plays Taiwan's national anthem.
A quick recap of the Guy Fawkes masked marauders that we all know and love... Anonymous originated in 2003 on 4chan and gained notoriety for hacking the Church of Scientology, the Westboro Baptist Church and a number of large corporations including PayPal, Mastercard, Visa and Sony. If you're familiar with Sam Esmail's Mr. Robot, the hacking group fsociety in the show was inspired by Anonymous.
