Huge Internet Attack in China Leads to Investigation

Many people were taken on a detour recently when they opened up their usually restricted sites in the People’s Republic of China. 

The rerouting led them to an anti-censorship site known as DIT that allowed them free access to material deemed harmful to the conservative state’s interests. 

The official channels have reported that this malfunction may have been the result of activities carried out by hackers. A great deal of time and effort is being expended on solving the rupture in normal cyberspace patrolling by the Chinese authorities. 

DIT has been linked to a group of hackers known collectively as the Falun Gong. They have been found guilty of such previous incidents of sabotage. 

Things are not quite clear yet though. State officials still won’t say who or what exactly lies behind the systems  failure of sorts. Ironically, authorities have reiterated that China has been the target of hacking by foreign sources. 

However, the same allegations have been made against the Chinese government by such countries as the United States. The issue is a hot potato alright. An engineering fault may lie behind the whole fiasco. 

The Great Firewall may need to be repaired on an ad hoc basis. Matters are under control and those concerned are getting to the bottom of the real cause of the crash

Meanwhile, the mysterious reversal in censorship policy has traumatized the government by its obviously upsetting effects.
