Can Comment Crew, Anonymous and Luzsec endarger Capitalism?
Posted on February 20, 2013 by Akashma Online News
The New York Times released yesterday a special report on ‘Comment Crew’, a group of hackers from China. The U.S. government knew about them since 2005. But Obama Administration is keeping its mouth shut regarding ‘Comment Crew’. According to The New York Times, Comment Crew was tracked down to a white tall building in Shanghai, China.
On the outskirts of Shanghai, in a run-down neighborhood dominated by a 12-story white office tower, sits a People’s Liberation Army base for China’s growing corps of cyber warriors.
The building off Datong Road is the headquarters of P.L.A. Unit 61398. A growing body of digital forensic evidence -confirmed by U.S. intelligence officials who say they have tapped into the activity of the unit for years – leaves little doubt that an overwhelming percentage of attacks on U.S. corporations, organizations and government agencies originate in and around the white tower.

Hackivists around the world as they are widely known, are a group of hackers that serve social interest for the general public. The corporate world, and the governments see them as cyber criminals, crimes that can landed them in jail for 100 years if the governments wanted to, or 5 years or less if they take a plea. There had been all types of arrests on the hacker community, but there are many types of hackers and common criminals as well.
David Thomas known as El Mariachi was a common criminal and not a hackivist. His activities and crimes can not even be considered to be the work of a hacker, this type of crime does not involve hacking into computers. They have a gang working together, people that work in banks, or in places where there is a database to be extracted, but not by means of hacking. See Hakcers Wars
Madiant Security Firm reports(SPT&SPT1) speak of serious threat coming from China, “they have the evidence”, Madiant said. Why then the U.S. government insist on looking the other way. In the latest White House public release, Obama Administrations blames Wikileaks, Anonymous, and Luzsec as a threat to the U.S. and its American corporations.
White House warns of dangers posed by WikiLeaks, LulzSec, other ‘hacktivists’
New Obama administration strategy says organizations such as WikiLeaks and hacking group LulzSec may conduct “economic espionage against U.S. companies. Attorney General Eric Holder at press conference, February 20
The recent published 74 pages report of Mandiant security firm amount of information is impressive, they give an scope of the type of activities ‘Comment Crew’ is interested in: APT1 Exposing One of China’s Cyber Espionage Units. (APT-Advanced Persistent Threat) Mandiant_APT1_Report
On 2004 Mandiant started tracking the groups APT, that according to this security firm amount to 20 or so of these groups. In 2010 Mandiant published the first report on these Chinese groups, APT Report.
“The Chinese government may authorize this activity, but there’s no way to determine the extent of its involvement. Now, three years later, we have the evidence required to change our assessment” .Mandian said
This issues needs to be taken very seriously and not just like another paper published. There are serious consequences and ramifications to this report.
There is no news that all the governments have an army of cyber warriors, but the interesting point on this report is the deep of the insertion of ‘Comment Crew’ into the U.S. government databases. Remember this group is in China, where more of the illegal cyber activity occurs apart from Indonesia where there are more than 65,000 known hackers.
The war on words started last year when U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers accused China of cyber espionage. There are serious consequences when you speaking publicly acting as a representative of the U.S. government. Specially is your adversary is China, known to buy U.S. debt and owning trillions of dollars of it.
China’s economic espionage has reached an intolerable level and I believe that the United States and our allies in Europe and Asia have an obligation to confront Beijing and demand that they put a stop to this piracy. Beijing is waging a massive trade war on us all, and we should band together to pressure them to stop. Combined, the United States and our allies in Europe and Asia have significant diplomatic and economic leverage over China, and we should use this to our advantage to put an end to this scourge. — U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, October, 2011
Chinese Defense Minister on January, 2013 responded to such charges, saying that it is unprofessional and groundless to accused the Chinese Military of launching cyber attacks without conclusive evidence.
Why will China want to steal American Corporate secrets? Isn’t the U.S. government sent our corporations and its secrets to China a decade ago? The American Corporations become greedy and exchanged security for cheaper operational costs. They moved to China.

2006-2010: Remaking IBM into a globally integrated enterprise
IBM was clear on its strategy; making it a reality took a lot of work. The transformation took place in phases that often overlapped. From 2006 to 2008, IBM expanded its presence in Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe, and today nearly half of its employees are in emerging markets. The company set up a network of global delivery centers in India, China, Brazil and other countries. By standardizing processes and outputs across its large, diverse client base, IBM could deliver quality services to its IT and business process outsourcing clients consistently, with the right skills, in the right place—wherever that would be. Projects could be staffed more quickly, delivering greater value to clients sooner.
The model of shared services caught on. Global procurement was centralized in China.

Dell will consider transferring its factories to central and western China if wages in coastal areas continue to rise. However, the company supports higher wages for workers in coastal areas, said Amit Midha, the president of Dell in Greater China and South Asia, on June 21, 2010
Several electronic manufacturers including Foxconn have previously decided to move factories to inland regions. In 2009, Taiwan Hon Hai Group, the parent company of Foxconn, established a joint venture for producing laptop computers with Hewlett-Packard in Chongqing.
Taiwan Quanta Computer, another major laptop contract manufacturer, also established factories in Chongqing in early 2010.
Cyber espionage and cyber warfare has everything to do with China, theoretically speaking. If People Liberation Army controls every aspect of the life in China, including people jobs, habitat, and food. Chances are, that China government is taking advantage of the greed of American Corporations. Pay back time for the years of abusing the people of China. The government of China allowed for a whole decade to use their people as slaves workers for American companies.
While this phenomenon of jobs transfer was going to China, American Corporate world was enjoying a steady raise in their profits, and China as Imperial power, become stronger, controlling the price of the dollar, monopoly of products made in China, buying American debt, accelerated production of weapons of all calipers and strategically straightening its power in the world.
For China the ‘One Child Policy” paid off. On the backs of their citizens the Chinese Imperial Power Become a World Power.

We the United States of North America sent our manufacturers to China, even some of the Military gadgets were to be made in China, critical technology for the Defense Department was even ‘Made In China’.
