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 Laurie 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 Laurie 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 “Laurie 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.”
