The group was started by three members in July 2011, hacker1989, Bboy, and Loki. Early members of the group included: $n1ff3rg0d, Gtone/Dtown, H1N1, DonGoth/Ko Dote, Blackvenom /TwoTwo), James Bond/Zero h4ck3r and Cyberoot/DownFall.

Although hacker1989 (Thein Myint Kyaw) assumed a leading role in the early times, coordination infrastructure is closely connected with the Myanmar Security Forum (MSF) and Creatigon[#1], a newly created consultancy company in Myanmar.
Min Ko Ko (133720, Cyberoot, Master Leet, Down Fall) and other members of the MHU Sai Win Myat (404 Death, Mg Sai Lai, Lawliet Ryuzaki) and Okkar Kyaw (syst3m Ŝyşt Ėm) were selected under the sponsorship of MPT to attend the Asean-Japan Cyber Sea Game (CTF) to represent Myanmar and attend the first Asian Cyber Security Competition “Cyber SEA Game 2015” in Jakarta in November 2015.

The group was also joined in Jakarta by Thin Ba Shane, member of MHU and Creatigon.

During 2015, the group reached a maximum of 50 members under the MHU label, but only half of them are officially accepted. The group has always struggle to define clear rules of membership and attackers use the MHU as a cover channel to promote nationalisms.

Thein Myint Kyaw, former hacker1989 and now known as MHU al@rm / John Lane remains active in the group after completing his studies at the Institute of Marine Studies/Myanmar Mercantile Marine College.
