snydeq writes “The group that took down Twitter last month has apparently claimed another victim: China’s largest search engine Baidu.com. Offline late Monday, Baidu.com at one point displayed an image saying ‘This site has been hacked by Iranian Cyber Army,’ according to a report in the official newspaper of the Chinese Communist Party and other Web sites. The Iranian Cyber Army first gained notoriety with its Dec. 18 Twitter attack. Baidu’s domain name records were the focus of the hack. On Monday, the company was using domain name servers belonging to HostGator, a Florida ISP, instead of the Baidu.com nameservers the company normally uses.”
