Access this website from behind the Great Firewall

The Great Firewall, referring to the online censorship managed by the Chinese government, is a sensitive topic. The authorities deny access to hundreds of websites and searches (and we do our best to keep track of which ones). But they also don't want their people to know that they do this. For this reason, they block access to websites that inform about how the censorship works. Two days ago, this websites joined the list of websites blocked in China.

However, we've set up a mirror website which, at this moment, is not blocked in China:

 

 

 

https://122.248.216.0

 

 

 

Because it's accessed through HTTPS, the GFW cannot automatically block access to it based on its contents. The so-called SSL certificate is invalid though, so you have to accept a warning message displayed by your browser to access it.

Our mirror website might also be blocked - time will tell (and our automatic monitoring, of course). But for the mean time, if you want to share any content on our website with VPN-less people in China, feel free to use the above link.

Chinese authorities compromise millions in cyberattacks

The Great Firewall has switched from being a passive, inbound filter to being an active and aggressive outbound one. This is a frightening development and the implications of this action extend beyond control of information on the internet. In one quick movement, the authorities have shifted from enforcing strict censorship in China to enforcing Chinese censorship on internet users worldwide.

CNNIC censored Google and Mozilla’s posts about CNNIC CA

This week, Google found unauthorized digital certificates for several Google domains, the root CA of which is CNNIC. Google and Mozilla both publicly disclosed this security incident and published blog posts(Google, Mozilla). However, Chinese translations of Google’s and Mozilla's blog posts were censored on the Chinese Internet.

  • William Long is a prominent Chinese blogger on IT and tech. He translated Google’s security post without adding any personal opinions. The Chinese blogpost ranked #1 when searching CNNIC MITM in Chinese on Google and Baidu. He tweeted that he received a phone call from propaganda department demanding the post to be removed immediately. The post http://www.williamlong.info/archives/4183.html was deleted. Google cache is still available.

Evidence shows CNNIC and CAC behind MITM attacks

Since 2013, we have repeatedly called on major software vendors to revoke CNNIC-issued certificates. Most notably, we raised this issue when we reported on the Cyberspace Administration of China’s (CAC) man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks on Google, Microsoft’s Outlook, Apple, Yahoo and Github. Mainstream media have reported about these security vulnerabilities before and on March 24, Ars Technica reported on Google’s announcement that they have definitive evidence that CNNIC (China Internet Network Information Center) was behind a new MITM attack on Google.

From our October, 2014 blog post:

We are under attack

We are under attack and we need help.

Likely in response to a recent story in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), we’ve experienced our first ever distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack. This tactic is used to bring down web pages by flooding them with lots of requests - at the time of writing they number 2.6 billion requests per hour. Websites are not equipped to handle that kind of volume so they usually “break” and go offline.

This kind of attack is aggressive and is an exhibition of censorship by brute force. Attackers resort to tactics like this when they are left with no other options.

We are not equipped to handle a DDoS attack of this magnitude and we need help. Some background:

  • The attack started on March 17 and we are receiving up to 2.6 billion requests per hour which is about 2500 times more than normal levels.

Collateral Freedom and the not-so-Great Firewall

Recognizing that the authorities have been hesitant to crackdown on our method of circumvention, we have accelerated our expansion of the development of collateral freedom, in three key areas.

As of today (2011-04-03) I have no problem accessing this website without the use of VPN from Shanghai, mainland China.

Interesting. I just tried and it this moment it's still blocked. Anyone else able to access it without a VPN/proxy?

That is strange. Still works for me though, while all the other pages on the blocked list are. well. blocked.

only a few days, maybe a glitch.
