Beijing, Oct 13 :
The ‘Anonymous’ group of computer hackers has delivered on its promise and released confidential data from two official Chinese websites in a show of support for the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, the South China Morning Post reported Monday.
Shortly before the information from the websites was posted, the Chinese government had admitted that these web pages were under cyber attack.
It is not known why Anonymous chose these two websites which, in theory, are of little relevance and have no links with the protests.
The group has declared that it has already accessed more than fifty official pages, data from which it might be releasing soon.
This is the group’s second intervention in Hong Kong’s “Umbrella Revolution”.
Earlier this month, it targeted several Hong Kong websites in retaliation for the use of tear gas and coercive measures by the police against the demonstrators who are demanding universal suffrage in upcoming municipal elections.
