At the night of lunar Jan. 2nd (Feb. 15th), some netizens reported that they could not login in cctv.com from time to time, and the homepage of CCTV was covered by a western woman’s picture. The page didn’t fully recover until 20:20. No official comment from the website by far.

According to the reporter, he wanted to login in cctv.com at 20:05 to watch the Vancouver Olympic Games, only to find a picture with a western woman’s derrière. He’s not alone; many netizens had already discovered the problem and posted it on a few BBS. The content that got hacked might seen irrelevant to the Spring Festival Gala hosted by CCTV on Chu Xi (Spring Festival’s Eve), however, many netizens believed that the hacker was upset by the Gala because it planted too much soft ads in-between the program which is supposed to entertain the whole country for the one time in a year. The reporter then contacted a few employees of CCTV, all of whom replied “on vacation, don’t know about it”.

In fact, it is not the first time cctv.com gets hacked. On Jan. 30, some “unhealthy videos” were posted on Xing Bo Ke, one of cctv.com’s video channel, but removed 2 hours later. The comment then was “our IT department doesn’t work on weekends, plus nobody reported about this, it’s probably just a joke.”
