A Chinese hacker who was responsible for cracking some local Jingmen government websites was captured in a Wuhan hotel last week. The hacker, whose alias is "Yu Hua", posted his contact details on a website, and police used those details to then track him down.

Police say that on April 7 Yu Hua posted the names of 11 websites that we was targetting and he said that he could make those sites collapse within ten minutes. Ten minutes later, he cracked those sites and shut them down.

After the sites were closed, Yu Hua posted his QQ instant messenger details for others to contact him, but police then used that information to forensically identify his whereabouts.

Yu Hua, whose real name has not yet been released, was arrested at the Wuhan hotel where he was employed. The case is currently being processed and the charges against him have not been released.
