Thai Hackers Claim Responsibility:
Hong Kong Blondes Satellite Says It Made Cyber-Attacks

CHAING RAI, Thailand -- A computer hacking group modeled after the legendary "Hong Kong Blondes" now claims -- after its December warning in WorldNetDaily that it intended to hack CNN and other major Western websites via "Denial of Service" methods -- that it is responsible for the recent attacks on CNN.com, Buy.com, eBay, Yahoo!, Amazon.com and other major sites. In "The Beijing hack attack," a WorldNetDaily exclusive report on the Chinese group founded by super-hacker Blondie Wong, WND reported that a new satellite group identifying with the "Blondes" had sprung up in Thailand. The report noted that the anti-communist hacking group promised to target not only Communist China, but also top Western corporations, including CNN.
The stated purpose of this consortium of hackers: to stop the government of Communist China from persecuting its own citizens, and to protest against Western transnational corporations that do business with China.
While many groups have claimed responsibility for the high profile cyber-attacks and the claims of the Thai hackers may be far-fetched, recent events make the claims of these Far East hackers seem a little less far out.
Last Wednesday the wire services reported that a hack attack originating in Mainland China attempted to steal thousands of credit card numbers from RealNames, a California-based Web business.
Although the attack was dissimilar to the attacks on CNN.com, Yahoo! and eBay, that attack was more destructive as it gained access to personal data.
RealNames stated that over 60,000 of its addresses had been re-routed to a China-based website. A spokesman for the company said the intruders didn't actually steal anything, but, "Our best guess is that this was done by a traditional hacker, whose goal is not to steal, but to prove that he has the ability to steal."
The Thailand satellite hackers group, which has taken the name of "The Julie Holden Drool Brigade" -- a youngish tribute to their mentor Tracey Kinchen, a former MI5 agent with British Intelligence who is also a dead ringer for actress Julie Holden -- recently met with WorldNetDaily in the northern Thai city of Chiang Rai to spell out their reasons for taking part in the attacks.
"We hacked RealNames looking for credit card numbers of international bigwigs," said Maxi Coke, a Thai female hacker based in Bangkok.
"It's just like we told WorldNetDaily. This is real. We are not going away. We said we would go after Ted Turner, this was before the merger between AOL and Time Warner, and we did take down CNN. The globalist elites have to get the message. We will never, never ever stop fighting them. Our movement will not be co-opted. Red China and all the Western corporations should beware."
"People will say we need anger management training, or that we need government-sponsored websites designed just so we can hack them for fun, but we're really serious," said Minny Jet, another Thai female hacker who lives in Chiang Mai.
Maxi Coke said that fellow hackers in Mainland China and Germany assisted in the attack.
"We launched the attack from inside the FBI's own computers. We called it the 'Janet Reno Dance Party.' We didn't want her to have to go too far to find the source of the attack. When she looks too hard, peaceful law abiding citizens tend to get burned up from time to time -- like in Waco, Texas."
Like other groups claiming responsibility for the high-profile attacks, the "Julie Holden" hacking group has spelled out its demands for ceasing its attacks on the World Wide Web.
First, Western governments and multinational corporations must stop trading with Communist China.
Second, Nuremberg-style trials of the United Nations for "crimes against humanity," referring to its promotion of abortion, which must be commenced before the end of the year 2000.
Third, the laundering of all the drug money in the world must be uncovered and examined before the public.
"Trade, drugs and abortion -- these are the main evils in the world," said Mini Jet. "The elites are a selfish, self-anointed group of snobs. The Chinese, Russians, U.N, Western corporations, they all are raping the planet with impunity."
"Since they are what I would call 'evil,' and their view of the world and mankind's nature is all wrong -- they can only lead us all into a future of anarchy and destruction," said Mini Jet. "Forced abortion, sterilization, organ harvesting, the rape of Tibet. These things are evil. Why is the European Union calling Joerg Haider of Austria a Nazi? He's done nothing wrong. Yet the EU embraces the Nazi atrocities of China. They are such hypocrites!"
The Thailand-based group pledged more attacks in the future, though they refused to specify targets, means or cooperating groups, if any. Members did state they were in no way officially connected with the Hong Kong Blondes, but would willingly "carry out any instructions given to us by Blondie Wong" -- the internationally recognized leader of the Hong Kong Blondes. They further said they identified with all of Blondie Wong's goals and ideals -- and would never steal, or act in any way that was not "peaceful."
The Chinese government, one hacker insisted, is "terrified of the power of the Internet to spread the message of freedom."
Additionally, the group's members said they were setting up Maoist-style cells, operating independently of one another, and that they are training and encouraging others of like mind to set up their own hacking cells.
"We're in a war," Maxi Coke reminded WorldNetDaily. "A war means there will be POWs. Prisoners of a spiritual war or battle if you will. And, of course, there are martyrs in any war. Unfortunately, we see so many people in the developing world are martyrs to false gods of drugs, consumerism and the culture of death."
For its part, the Communist Chinese government earlier this week arrested and imprisoned four founders of a Chinese magazine which used the Internet to advocate social, cultural and religious freedom. The four will be charged with "subversion."
Asked what they would do if they were caught by the Chinese government, the group, led by Maxi Coke, said that they were "willing to be martyrs for a great cause. If we stop fighting our enemies, the world will die. It feels good to be standing in the light on the side of good versus evil. We want only to inspire the growing anti-globalist, pro-freedom movement to continue the heroic struggle on behalf of persecuted Chinese Christians and other religious and political dissidents currently suffering in prisons and gulags."

Thank you for the post. This is interesting. The Thais have a great disdain for Communism, so this claim does not surprise to me. Lots of people keeping a close eye on the internet, LQQKing for further developments.

I don't see anything in the Bangkok Post today about this. Do you have any more news links about this story? Thanks. =)

Maybe they could use a few anger-management classes.

Wonder if they were reading this forum last year? Seems they have the same goals as a great many posters here: anti-globalism and anti-big-corporation world takeover and anti-Communist. I don't agree with acts of cyber-terrorism, but I have to admmire their aims, if this is true.
