‘Hacktivists’ strike againBy Doris C. Dumlao
Philippine Daily Inquirer
A “Hacktivist” group protesting the anticybercrime law struck anew Thursday night, vandalizing the homepage of the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPhil).
Hacktivism is a term that fuses hacking and social activism.
IPOPhil, the seventh official institutional site defiled by the hacktivist group Anonymous Philippines, was back to normal by Friday morning.
Anonymous Philippines, the same entity that defaced a string of government and nongovernment institutional websites Wednesday night, attacked the IPOPhil’s website www.ipophil.gov.ph.
An image of a devilish face—an eerie version of the lady in the Victoria Court emblem—was posted on the homepage.
