Amid increasing cyber attacks on both political and commercial targets by groups linked to China, the barriers to entering this potentially lucrative black market industry are close to non-existent as hackers share tips and best practices online. On the Chinese internet, websites and forums dedicated to teaching hacking proliferate. Techniques on offer can be used by both criminal “black hat” hackers and “white hat” cybersecurity researchers. On HDHacker, a forum which claims more than 465,000 members, one training programme for “black hat” hackers promises tutors with six years of experience who will guide students through a curriculum that includes “dozens of security and remote control methods” and “site penetration and analysis of source code” for a one off fee of 650 yuan (US$105).
