Sotto website defaced



MANILA, Philippines—Senate Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III’s website (titosotto.com) was defaced Monday night by cyber activist “Anonymous Philippines.”

“It’s been a long time, Tito Sen! Deny us our freedom of speech and of expression through R.A. 10175 and we will deny you your cyberspace,” the hacker posted on Sotto’s website.

“You cannot shut us up, you cannot shut us down. And you shall not see us rest until R.A. 10175 is revised,” the hacker said.

RA 10175 —the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012—became controversial because it criminalizes online libel, among other things, angering journalists who have been campaigning for the decriminalization of libel.

It was Sotto who proposed the libel provision in the controversial law.

  • Marife Cudal

    Actually this is not a karma for him, they only prove that cyber crime law is a must. hindi naman yung taong ayaw nila yung maapektuhan eh kundi yung services para sa taong-bayan. What a shame act Anonymous Philippines!

    • vinzerx

      • Marife Cudal

    This is a ploy from the Sotto camp to further justify R.A. 10175! 

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004309121072 Isha Carandang

    What  these hackers did is scary. Now you don’t have to be a politician or influential person for you to be a victim of cybercrime. It’s an intrusion of one’s privacy.

      That why we really need the cybercrime law and must approved at the senate immediately to prevent irresponsible social media users to do this acts of anonymous Phil!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XXMVC66BK2NJINS3UEVPU7UDNM Joe

    Does Sen. Sotto Copy ever read the comments here and everywhere?  At least somebody must be informing him if he does not understand.  With all the incessant ridicule and insult he receives daily, one wonders what kind of impenetrable material his facial skin is made of. 

  • divictes

    What face?

  • bobong_urHonor_at_DonDee

    Sotto should have just apologized for COPYING his homework.
