As you may know, our platform including the BBS and Blog was attacked on the Monday afternoon. Hackers invaded our background system and deleted the data in the past 5 months and the backups.

After 4 days fixing, we regain part of the data and the threads or posts written in the past 5 months. Perhaps, the data accumulated this week may have no chance to retrieve as we told. Sorry about that.

The blogs have not been restored and now our tech staff are working on it. Hard to say the timeline for the final recovery.

There are kinds of errors and bugs we need to solve so please wait for the solution patiently. Currently we focus on the building of the wall to safeguard our system from being attacked again.

Sorry for the inconvenience to you all!

CD is an important website for promoting understanding of China by rest of world. The hackers could be either leftist or rightist extremists. Or just pranksters.
What's on your mind...
