ABC News just confirms that a Chinese national has contacted the National Broadcaster, claiming responsibility for the hacking incident. This is the relevant section from the news report:
The hacker has contacted the ABC saying he does not work for the Chinese Government and is just an ordinary, angry Chinese citizen who objects to the film.
The film’s director Jeff Daniels says he is concerned about the fact Victoria police will be putting on extra security for the screening.
“I personally find it appalling that the Chinese Government has put the film festival and film-goers in a position where they need a police escort and private security to see a film,” he said.
“I think Melbourne is getting a small taste of the position that the Chinese Government has put Rabiya Kadeer and her family and the Uighur population in for the past 60 years.”
The film festival organiser reiterates that the Kadeer film will be screened as schedule.
This author once again urges Chinese authorities and their representatives in Australia to cooperate with the Australian Police in tracking down the hacker(s) responsible for this act of cyber-terrorism.
