    Oops, an utter Chinese gaffe from the 'Alabama Uni Attack People's Liberation Army', shows a hack attack on an IP address belonging (at the time) to Alabama University.

    "...On 17th of July, a military documentary program titled "Military Technology: Internet Storm is Coming" was published on the Government-run TV channel CCTV 7, Millitary and Agriculture (at military.cntv.cn).

    The program seems to be a fairly standard 20-minute TV documentary about the potential and risks of cyber warfare. However, while they are speaking about theory, they actually show camera footage of Chinese government systems launching attacks against a U.S. target. This is highly unusual. The most likely explanation is that this footage ended up in the final cut because the editor did not understand the significance of it."

    And some more details on this epic facepalm docudrama;

    "The CCP has leaked its top secret here," says Jason Ma, a commentator for New Tang Dynasty Television. "This is the first time we see clearly that one of the top Chinese military universities is doing this research and developing software for cyber-attacks. There's solid proof of it in this video," he said.
    ...
    The military documentary on July 17, on the other hand, was meant to show that the United States is the real aggressor in cyberspace, and that China is highly vulnerable to cyber-attacks. “America is the first country to propose the concept of a cyberwar, and the first country to implement it in a real war,” the narrator said at one point.

    UAB moves to Conference USA and they get attacked from the other side of the planet. If they were still in the Sun Belt this would never have happened. :thumbd:

    A lot of good it does for them to remove it. The Google cache still has it.

    Poor editing skills they've got there, although this hacking was already pretty obvious.
