Chinese Women Learning Hacking Techniques
According to Dancho Danchev, a consultant that works independently on Internet security and analysis of cyber threats, women in China have stepped into the world of cyber crime by carrying out hacking operations and are discussing the different aspects of cyber crime and its environment.
As per the news published on May 30, 2008 by ZDNet, the young Chinese females are planning about launching SQL injection attacks to serve ARP spoofing and malware with simultaneous sharing of the self-learning tutorials on cross-site scripting worms.
According to Chinese girls and security researchers, male Chinese hackers carried out successful SQL injection assaults on millions of Websites during the recent months. And now Chinese females too want to excel by learning the hacking techniques.
Meanwhile, according to security investigators, an SQL injection represents one new technique among the several that malware writers use to deliver malware. In such an attack, malicious software is injected into strings of code that are subsequently transmitted to an SQL Server where they are parsed and run.
Apart from the SQL injection technique, Chinese girls are also trying the ARP spoofing method.
Security researchers define ARP spoofing as 'ARP Poison Routing', or 'ARP Cache Poisoning' in which an Ethernet LAN is attacked by modifying the target PC's ARP cache with a forged ARP request as well as reply packets.
Apart from these techniques, the Chinese females are attempting to write Trojan programs and computer viruses too. trojans are innocuous-appearing programs that seem to perform authentic and beneficial functions but actually performs illegal activities like destroying database on the target computer or allowing a third party to gain illegal access to the machine.
Turning of Chinese women into hackers increases threat to all users and non-users of cyber world.
Meanwhile, according to reports, a distinction among hardcore Chinese activists on hacking with their comprehension of the method of launching users' knowledge warfare is recently demonstrated via the Anti-CNN campaign. In that, the activists were able to recruit lakhs of wanted 'hacktivists' who would play a role in the hacking assaults, while the ordinary script novices like the Chinese ladies would assist in the download as well as application of hacking software.
