anonymous-algeria-charaf-anons-chinese-sites hacked

Just two days ago, I wrote about a hack in which 63 Chinese government websites were defaced by a hacker using handle of Charof Anons from Anonymous Algeria. Today the same hacker has hit back with another hack of 51 Chinese government websites and 20 other government sites belonging to Iran, Mexico, Venezuela, Taiwan and South Korea. 

All 71 sites were left with a deface page along with a simple note, not explaining the reason for attacking Chinese sites “Hacked By Charaf Anons, Anonymous Algeria.”

Hacked sites are from different government owned educational institutions while Chinese sites belong to local cities and municipalities.

Links of hacked sites with their mirror are available on Pastebin.

At the time of publishing this article, most of the sites were down while remaining were displaying deface page left by the hacker.
