Russian Consulate Website Attacked to Protest Sinking of Ship

Several sites are carrying information concerning an attack on the Russian Consulate in Shanghai to protest the Russian Navy's sinking of a Chinese ship as it tried to escape after being impounded for alleged smuggling.

The website was defaced with a protest message:
“Russia invaded our territory to kill people from the People’s Republic. Hack done for the Chinese crew of controversy! Russia must be punished! ! ! Hacked BY: Yu”
Yu is described in the article as "a network security enthusiast that has been defacing Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese and U.S sites for a while, but had to give up his activities due to college studies."
