HACKED Humanrights - Chinese Gov't

Grab of the Hacked page

Monday, October 26, 1998

The same day the Chinese government announced a web site dedicated to human rights, hackers from the United States defeated its security and replaced its message with one of criticism of China's human rights record, to put it lightly.

A passing reference was also made to the Kevin Mitnick case and links to Amnesty International and real Chinese human rights organizations were put on the site.

Oddly enough, the hacked site remained up throughout the entire day of October 27, 1998.
