The Revolution Will Be Televised
Chinese hackers in Guangdong Province interrupted programming with anti-government messages!

ABC4 reported -via Global Incident Map:

Hackers allegedly hijacked satellite TV signals in southern China to broadcast anti-government messages, news reports said Thursday.Viewers complained that their TV screens went blank for nearly two hours or showed anti-government messages for 30 to 40 seconds Tuesday evening, the Shanghai-based Xinmin Evening News said in a report on the Web site Sohu.com. The report didn’t describe the content of the messages that aired in Guangdong province.

TV station operators told viewers that hackers may have hijacked their satellites, the report said. But a receptionist who answered the phone at a cable TV operator in Guangdong said the incident involved a satellite problem that has been fixed.

“The satellite’s reception wasn’t very stable,” said the receptionist, who declined to be named because she was not a spokeswoman.
