3 more PH sites hacked Monday
INQUIRER.net, Radyo Inquirer 990 AM
MANILA, Philippines—Three more sites were defaced early Monday, about four days after seven government and private websites in the Philippines were vandalized as protest for the enactment of the anti-cybercrime law, a report from Radyo Inquirer 990 AM said.
This time, the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), Philippine Information Agency (PIA) and the Food Development Center sites were vandalized by hacker-activists claiming to be associated with Anonymous Philippines, the same group that claimed responsibility for last week’s initial attack.
Calling themselves PrivateX, the hackers group called the recent cyber vandalism as “Bloody Monday.”
The new defaced websites have the common message:
“This domain name associated with GOV.PH has been seized pursuant to an order issued by Anonymous Philippines,
“A federal grand jury has indicated several individuals and entities allegedly involved in the operation of this website / department / office charging them with the following federal crimes: Conspiracy, Violations of Human Rights, Corruption, Copyright infringement, Money Laundering, PIRACY, Misuse of Devices, Libel, Plagiarism, and Destruction of Freedom of Speech.”
On Sunday, the site of Agusan del Sur was also defaced by a hacker using the name “Ang31s0n”.
“The Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 poses serious threats to Internet freedom, the right to privacy and other essential civil liberties including the freedom of speech, expression and the press,” the hacker stated.
Most of the hacked sites had the same background rock music, Queen’s “I Want To Break Free.”
Ironically, the defunct British rock band’s hit song talks about someone breaking up with a lover who he/she discovers is cheating on him/her but is having a hard time getting “over the way you love me like you do.”
But song also says the broken hearted immediately falls in love with another.
