A total of 178 government websites in China were attacked from January 4 to January 10, up 409%. This according to China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
Lu Jingjian, council member of China Computer Federation, believes that majority of the government websites in China are vulnerable and prone to attacks.
In this, very few serious hackers would argue he was wrong. You CAN build an unhackable website – and then it will barely work.
English People’s Daily Online said organized terrorist organizations, individual hackers, or certain civil network units that want to get more attention are possible attackers of the government websites. But most attackers attack because they can.
