jjp9999 writes “Anyone looking for the video clip showing the Chinese regime launching cyberattacks using script kiddie tactics was greeted with a message stating ‘Error Page — This page does not exist anymore,’ on the state-run TV website. The propaganda video, still available on YouTube, included a clip showing an unseen user launching a cyberattack against an Alabama-based website of the Falun Gong meditation practice. China’s Defense Minister told the Washington Post via e-mail that the video was ‘pure action of the producer,’ adding that the ‘Chinese military has never implemented any form of cyber attacks.’ The statement is the common line given by the regime after they’re tacked with launching a global cyberattack — including after GhostNet, Operation Aurora, Operation Night Dragon, and Operation Shady Rat were revealed.”
