China's Great Cannon | The Citizen Lab Toronto - 2015 |  [pdf version]

This post describes our analysis of China's "Great Cannon," our term for an attack tool that we identify as separate from, but co-located with, the Great Firewall of China. The first known usage of the Great Cannon is in the recent large-scale novel DDoS attack on both GitHub and servers used by GreatFire.org.

Section 1: Introduction, Key Findings

On March 16, GreatFire.org observed that servers they had rented to make blocked websites accessible in China were being targeted by a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack.  On March 26, two GitHub pages run by GreatFire.org also came under the same type of attack.  Both attacks appear targeted at services designed to circumvent Chinese censorship.  A report released by GreatFire.org fingered malicious Javascript returned by Baidu servers as the source of the attack.1  Baidu denied that their servers were compromised.2
