A well-known Chinese hacker has struck again, hitting a film festival 
showing a documentary about Uygur separatist Rebiya Kadeer.

Around 3 pm Monday, Taiwan's Kaohsiung Film Festival webpage was 
replaced with an image of the People's Liberation Army with China's 
national anthem playing in the background. The image was later changed 
to a picture of Kadeer with the Dalai Lama, who recently visited Taiwan.

The hacker defaced the website with the message: "Against Xinjiang 
separatists, against Tibet separatists and happy 60th birthday to the 
People's Republic of China! Perhaps oldjun!"

"Oldjun" is also the hacker who replaced the official website of the 
Melbourne Film Festival with an image of the Chinese flag and some 
anti-Kadeer slogans in late July after the organizer refused to withdraw 
the documentary.

"I hacked into their website because I simply want to express people's 
anger about the screening of the film," the 25-year-old network 
administrator "oldjun" from Nanjing exclusively told China Daily Monday. 
"It is the same reason why I hacked into the Melbourne Film Festival's 
website."

He said he found security flaws in the website and hacked into it within 
one minute. "It is my own doing. Nobody told me to do it. I really don't 
understand why they have to show the film." The website returned to 
normal around 7 pm last night.
