A Mac OS X support site – OS X FAQ – has been cracked by Chinese Mac users.

The crackers posted a statement on the site’s forum page, which is hosted by author Bob ‘Dr. Mac’ LeVitus.

The crackers, who condemned Americans, said they'd exercised restraint in their attack: “I put mercy to Mac users before justice and have not deleted your forums and users like I do on Wintel sites”.

The crackers further warned against “telling lies about Chinese human rights abuses”.

The statement was littered with expletives against Windows users, the US government, and US spy-plane pilots.

The site’s editor-in-chief, Scott Sheppard, labelled the act as “childish vandalism”.

He continued: “We hope to have the forums back online soon. Meanwhile, the rest of the site continues to function as usual”.
