Information Warfare: September 27, 2002


The Information War between China and it's opponents is heating up. China has officially denied that it was responsible for infecting computer belonging to the Tibetan Computer Resource Center (part of the exiled Dali Lama's organization). These Trojan horse programs were found to be emailing information from the Tibetan servers to addresses at Chinese universities and government offices. A Chinese government representative said that, "the Chinese government always opposes the activities of hackers." At the same time, the Chinese were accusing the Taiwanese as providing support for the Falungong in their continuing efforts to hijack Chinese TV satellite to broadcast Falungong propaganda to Chinese TV audiences. Falungong continues to get the passwords to access Chinese TV satellites and China says Falungong is using a satellite transmission dish in Taiwan to send their material to the hijacked Chinese satellite.
