Chinese girls talking about using SQL injections to serve malware and ARP spoofing, in between sharing do-it-yourself tutorials on XSS worms? Sexy.  Scott Henderson at the Dark Visitor profiled a Chinese hacking group with female members only, discussing these very same topics :Chinese female hacking group

"In the male dominated world of Chinese hackers, females find it difficult to be accepted as equals. Their technical skills are often viewed as inferior to their male counterparts. As far as I am aware, the first group of female Chinese hackers to break this mold were the Six Golden Flowers. The Golden Flowers have since broken up and gone their separate ways, but a new and larger group has taken their place, the Cn (China) Girl Security Team. The website for the China Girl Security Team was registered on 12 Mar 2007 and currently has 2,217 members. The leader of the group Xiao Tian, is only 19 years old"

What you should make distinction between are the hardcore Chinese hacktivists whose understanding of how to wage people's information warfare was most recently demonstrated in the Ani-CNN campaign where they've managed to recruit hundreds of thousands of wannabe hacktivists for participating in the attacks, and the average script kiddies like these ladies localizing to Chinese well known security papers and actively promoting the download and use of hacking tools. Excluding the perspective that these very same "average script kiddies" turn into quite a threat when empowered, motivated, and coordinated, what are the chances we could witness a "cyberwar of the sexes" in the Chinese underground?

  • Hacking is hacking. Period. Gender is irrelevant.

    • agreed

      Go cut slack on chicks just because they are being treated unequally? I agree on this guy's point, hackers are hackers. I am not going to feel sorry for a female hacker if she manages to get my information or messes up my OS to further ending re-installation. Most should agree that females are good maybe better at some aspects, so it's not surprising they might have a group set up with lots of members joined up.
