Hacktivists claiming to hail from the Pakistan Cyber Army have defaced 
over 400 Chinese government web sites and also hit in excess of 20 
Bangladeshi government sites.

A hacker known as ‘Code Cracker’ is claiming responsibility for the 
attack on the official web site of Xuchang City People’s Procuratorate 
and a whopping 436 sub-domains, according to HackRead.

The domains were posted to hackers’ favourite Pastebin and all now 
appear to have been taken offline, however there does not appear to have 
been any explicit message left for the local government aside from a 
generic Pakistan Cyber Army logo and the words “hello admin”.

This isn’t the first time the local government of the Henan province 
city has been hit by cyber attack.

Back in September 2010 an Indonesian hacker known as Hmei7 apparently 
defaced the Procuratorate site and as recently as last month DevilzSec 
successfully did the same.
