Or, has some other commercial enterprise with another sort of malicious intent either hi-jacked or compromised in some way the IP address of ntscmp.com -- 18.104.22.168 [reverse DNS - hostedc10.megawebservers.com]. In that case, so as to launch the occasional phishing expedition and other forms of online fraud?
Based on some suberb detective work by EastSouthWestNorth, Mister B suspects the latter is looking increasingly likely. For why that is, please visit: EastSouthWestNorth or ESWN
Other than the evidence presented there, ESWN also has a report furnished by well-known IT expert Charles Mok. The report will be of interest to those of a technical bent: report.
What else? Having read a translation of the report in the Chinese-language mainstream media Apple Daily -- no friend of the Li family commercial empire -- on 22 September, one was waiting with some excitement to reading some more in the English-language newspapers South China Morning Post (paid subscription; no link) or Hong Kong's The Standard.
Nothing yet, though.
All we have is this, according to NTSCMP (via proxy server):
". . .South China Morning Post reacted to the NTSCMP censorship story by booting it quickly downhill to a columnist in the Business department who then got instructions to spike it."Would that be SCMP's Lai See column?
As for The Standard:
"The Standard's local news team on the other hand seems to be a man, his girlfriend and a bicycle these days."Erh, discuss.
