Chinese and the Vietnamese hackers have started a cyber war over the territorial dispute on the ownership of the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea. According to Global Times, a website under the operation of the Vietnamese Foreign Ministry was hacked in June. The cyber attack has disabled all the links on that website and placed the China’s flag at the center of the page. The article said the hackers left their cyber names “3King” and “Xiao Lan” on the website and claimed to be from Yancheng (northeastern Jiangsu Province).
