Companies can breathe a sigh of relief as police in Hubei province have recently taken down the Black Hawk Safety Net, a hacker training website that publicly provides illegal computer programs to its members.

After about six months of investigations, the police sealed Black Hawk Safety Net, arrested three of its main suspects, froze more than CNY1.7 million in funds involved and confiscated nine severs, five computers, a Honda Accord car and related certificates.

Reportedly the largest hacker training website in China, Black Hawk Safety Net publicly offered various hacking technology services and provided thousands of trojan horse software applications to its paid members. Since 2005, the website has recruited more than 12,000 paid members and 170,000 ordinary members.

This is the second major case that Hubei police have identified since the Worm.WhBoy case was uncovered in 2007.
