Hackers affiliated with the Anonymous collective have pledged to bring down China's Great Firewall, adding to the group's previous website defacement campaign.
A cell of hackers associated with Anonymous has promised to continue targeting Chinese sites and networks to protest corruption and human rights infringements within the country.
One group, AnonymousChina, predicted that it would bring down the so-called Great Firewall.
The call to arms follows the collective's previous defacement campaign, which saw hackers target over 500 Chinese government and industry websites, defacing their front pages with messages alleging human rights abuses.
But many of the group's previous targets have hit back at the claims made about them by the hackers.
Chinese security military contractor CEIEC said Anonymous's claims were unjustified.
"The information reported is totally groundless, highly subjective and defamatory," said the company spokesperson in a formal statement.
The company said it had abided by Chinese laws for the past 32 years, and had a history of operating honestly.
Officially called The Golden Shield Project, the term Great Firewall refers to China's widely criticised internet censorship policies. Started in 1998 by China's Ministry of Public Security (MPS), the project has gradually granted Chinese authorities the ability to block public access to a number of websites.
