Since her personal phone number was posted online, Hong Kong pro-democracy activist Carol Ng has received menacing calls from strangers and been bombarded with messages calling her a "cockroach".

She is not alone.

A sophisticated and shady website called HK Leaks has ramped up its "doxxing" -- where people's personal details are published online -- of Hong Kong political activists, targeting those it says have broken a sweeping new national security law.

Promoted by groups linked to the Chinese Communist Party and hosted on Russia-based servers, HK Leaks has become the most prominent doxxing site targeting democracy activists since it first emerged in 2019.

The website continues to operate despite requests last year from Hong Kong's Privacy Commissioner to remove all personal profiles, and it has been referred to the Hong Kong Police for investigation.

Home addresses, social media profiles and telephone numbers feature alongside descriptions of individuals' alleged "crimes".

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Responding to shortages of face masks amid a frightening coronavirus epidemic spreading from the mainland, a group of citizens in Hong Kong have set up a surgical face mask factory to ease supplies and deter price gouging in some stores.

The website published information on at least 14 people it claims broke the security law -- a charge which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison -- within weeks of the legislation being imposed by Beijing on the city, an AFP investigation found.

"When it first happened I was very stressed," Ng, chairwoman of the Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions, told AFP.

"I received some phone calls and messages from 'blue ribbon' people on Facebook," she said, referring to government supporters who adopted the colour because it is associated with the police.

"Every now and then, I receive a mass of WhatsApp messages, thousands of stickers. They call us cockroaches."

"They know they will make people very scared. But I'm not afraid, because this is my freedom and I will defend my freedom," Ng added.

Why the number of people getting tested for Covid-19 has dropped in the US

  Why the number of people getting tested for Covid-19 has dropped in the US Experts say we need more testing. But that’s not happening.As of September 17, the average daily tests is about 730,000, down from an average of 780,000 in early September and 830,000 in late July, according to the Covid Tracking Project. Meanwhile, the percent of tests coming back positive, which is used to gauge testing capacity, has remained around 5 percent — at times above the threshold of 5 percent that experts generally recommend, and exceeding the 3 percent threshold that some have called for.

- 'Bulletproof hosting' -

HK Leaks has so far posted the personal details of more than 2,000 people it deems guilty of various "misdeeds" -- a tenfold increase in a year.

Registered on a Russian server, it is specifically designed to evade prosecution, experts say. It uses so-called bulletproof anonymous hosting -- also favoured by controversial white supremacist-linked sites such as 8kun -- and regularly shifts domains.

Online traffic has increased to about 230,000 annual unique page views, according to SiteWorthTraffic.

In an update since last year, the site now features a pop-up window saying "rioters have ruined the rule of law and order of society in Hong Kong", and claims more than 2,000 police and pro-China individuals have themselves been doxxed by activists.

Prominent pro-democracy leaders Joshua Wong and Agnes Chow, co-founders of the disbanded Demosisto party, are on the site under a subsection named "Hong Kong independence rioter", while media mogul Jimmy Lai is also listed.

  The NRA and the Trump Campaign Appear to Be Flouting Election Laws. Again. In a recent ad bankrolled by the National Rifle Association, two masked men chase a woman through a parking lot to her gray sedan. She locks the doors and scrambles to grab her gun from the car’s console. A voiceover kicks in: “Joe Biden would take her rights away.” The gun dissolves into thin air, just as the driver’s side window shatters. The ominous 30-second spot, called “Carjack,” aired more than 10,000 times in swing districts across Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona, North Carolina, and Wisconsin during a two-week period in late August and early September. The NRA paid more than $4.1 million for the ad to run during shows like Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The View.

Also among the 14 alleged national security law offenders to have been doxxed are well-known activists Tony Chung, Nathan Law and Ray Wong.

Chung in July became the first political figure to be arrested under the law over allegations he had promoted Hong Kong independence through Studentlocalism, a group he co-founded in 2016.

Law, former chairman of Demosisto, fled to Britain after the national security law was passed.

Later that month, Chinese state media reported Law and Wong were among six people wanted by the Hong Kong Police on charges of "inciting session and colluding with foreign and external forces".

Ray Wong, who was granted political refugee status in Germany in May 2018, told AFP he suspects he has been targeted as part of a harassment campaign by Hong Kong and mainland Chinese authorities.

"I am not surprised at all," he said. "The Hong Kong government said they would try to arrest me by any means."

Online archives suggest HK Leaks migrated to its latest Pakistani domain address in November 2019.

The site moved its domain multiple times last year, apparently in an attempt to avoid detection, analysis by AFP has found.

To date, however, no one has been charged over the doxxing campaign.
