Written by: Staff

Shanghai, Feb 8: Against the recent controversy over the Internet giant Google Inc accusing China of hacking, the communist country has claimed to have busted the largest hacker training website.

China has reportedly shut down website known has 'Black Hawk Safety Net' and arrested three of its members. According to Wuhan Evening News newspaper, the website taught hacking techniques and provided malicious software downloads to its 12,000 members for a fee.

Quoting police in Huanggang, the newspaper reported over the weekend that the website was shut in Nov 2009. The three members have been arrested under the charges of criminal activity.

However, the newspaper said nothing about why the news was released now after two months of the closing down of the website.

Ever since the hacking activity in China came under the scanner of the international community due to Google's allegations, the country has denied involvement in the malicious activity.

It is especially tough to ascertain the source of the hacking attacks in Chine due to the immense popularity of hacking in the country. The hackers also use of multiple addresses and servers, in Taiwan and elsewhere.
