Chinese Hacker's Blog Shines Light on Military Hacking Unit

An extremely interesting blog from a Chinese hacker working for the People's Liberation Army hacking unit:

The security firm that reported about hacking last month tells the Times that Rocy Bird's posts from 2006-2009 "provided the most detailed first-person account known to date of life inside the hacking establishment" and that it's likely not much has changed in the four years since.

A few details from the blog, via the Times' report:

— Rocy Bird complained about being told to improve his English skills, and then being criticized for reading too many English-language magazines. "The boss doesn't understand," he wrote.

— At a school reunion, the hacker "felt ashamed to say hello" to old classmates because his pay was much less than theirs.

— His unhappiness showed through right from the start. " 'Fate has made me feel that I am imprisoned,' he wrote in his first entry on Sina.com. 'I want to escape.' "
