Anonymous hacking group has claimed to have targeted about 300 Chinese websites, which brings the total number to 485 in protest against Internet censorship in the country.
A list of the websites was mentioned in a long Pastebin post, though some are working normally now, but have been defaced again.
An Anonymous China account that was established last month through Twitter revealed details of this week's hackings which have compromised administrator accounts, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses.
The hacktivist group Anonymous, which also has a Chinese branch, says it has posted messages to the government and the Chinese people to join the group.
"Chinese hackers , programmers, etc and hackers all over the world, we invite you to be part of Anonymous China, fighting for justice," the group said.
"It will keep going. The targets are selected," the post read.
The hacker group which has over 562,000 followers now, has reportedly increased attacks after China has shut down Web sites, made a series of arrests and punished two popular microblogs folowiing rumors of a coup in Beijing linked to a major scandal that brought down a top politician.
