Baidu (, China’s biggest search engine, was hacked on Tuesday morning, and was inaccessible for several hours.   Chinese ‘netizens’ pointed out that the hackers, who call themselves “Iranian Cyber Army”, changed Baidu’s DNS records, redirecting traffic to another site.  A Baidu insider told at 9:40 (GMT+8) that the problem has been basically solved, and that “it will be OK in half an hour.” But the site was still found inaccessible at 10:45.   Source: People’s Daily Online
