The Chinese authorities have shut down what is reportedly the country’s biggest hacker training site.

So says the China Daily newspaper, in a move which comes not long after the Google hacking incident which saw accusations fly against China.

The hacking school, called Black Hawk Safety Net, allegedly imparted cyber-crime techniques via lessons and online forums.

Three people were arrested, and $250,000 worth of assets were frozen.

Apparently the site was set up in 2005, and had more than 12,000 paying customers.
