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.

        Sino si Toto? ayan away away pa kayo

        mabuti ka pa kimeberly, hindi na pinagaral ng magulang mo at eto panay ang kumento din dito. lol. masuwerta ka.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/AIYSIJJOL4JNRLHXVTGUH3NYHM The Overlord

        I’d rather NOT have a website than a website full of lies and deceit! Hahahaha! Besides, it’s more fun to poke at a comedian in the internet! At least, he’s doing his job making me laugh. :)

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/A7BBDAMMUD7VZ2FTY6RYRQE5FM Harold

      copy-paste? di pa rin makamove on? mga naninira lang na halata naman!

      • Komentador

        if only Tito apologized sincerely and threw his arrogance, this will not be a saga..

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/LWA3YDHDFXIYL3J64NLILU6YBM Jello

      alam mo yung salitang move on?? uso yon! hahahahha

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/AIYSIJJOL4JNRLHXVTGUH3NYHM The Overlord

    Does anyone even visit that comedian’s website? I didn’t even know he had a website in the first place! Now, his website is just as empty as his head.

    • Dennis

      Ang issue dito e yung paghahack ng website niya. Ang issue e yung maling gawain na ginagawa ng mga hackers.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/AIYSIJJOL4JNRLHXVTGUH3NYHM The Overlord

        No, Dennis, the real issue is the insertion of the Sotto amendment to the anti-cybercrime law. Many countries around the world have their own version of anti-cybercrime legislation but nowhere does it say that online libel is one degree higher than the print version. Sotto is just getting what he deserves. I am all for enacting laws that will penalize hackers but I will never be in favor of online libel prosecution.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/QFZ667RHX2MW75EDLN2ZDCOMWA Roberto

        NO! The issue here was ung paghack ng page. cant you read what’s written above?” 
        Sotto website defaced
         nga yung title ng article kung san ka nagcocomment e! Hirap sa mga kagaya mo comment comment lang! Bring up ng kung ano anong issue!!!!! 

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/AIYSIJJOL4JNRLHXVTGUH3NYHM The Overlord

        Oh please! Don’t believe everything you read! You’re abandoning your own logic (if you have one) if that’s how you roll. I would have gladly posted more text that actually describes how inept and incompetent Sotto if only I hacked his website days earlier. But then again, our friends from Anonymous already did the job. Not quite as dramatic as I expected, but it worked nevertheless. Tell Sotto he would go down in history as the most inutile senator who does nothing but copy speeches from others and even have the balls not to admit it.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/A7BBDAMMUD7VZ2FTY6RYRQE5FM Harold

        tama! hindi na dapat sinisiraan pa si Sen.Sotto dahil biktima lang sya ng mga iresponsableng hindi marunong gumamit ng internet ng maayos.

      • Komentador

        kapag ginulo website ni tito, hacker! kapag nangopya, di plagiarist, kundi pinasahan lang ng text at ginawang tagalog..very funny

    • maGGot_SOUP

      I dont plan to visit this Site also.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/QFZ667RHX2MW75EDLN2ZDCOMWA Roberto

      As your head too. not because you dont visit his page doent mean that no ones visiting it. Sino ka ba compared to the number of people who’s been supporting and believing on him all through out?

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/AIYSIJJOL4JNRLHXVTGUH3NYHM The Overlord

        You don’t know me? I’m just one of the more educated and informed voters who actually vote for people who have platform ideals, and principles in politics. I don’t vote for inutile people the likes of Sotto, Lapid, or Revilla who were obviously voted because they were popular on the boob tube and not on how they actually work as a legislator. Sotto is a pathetic excuse for a comedian-turned-senator who unfortunately was voted into office by people who are as incompetent as he is.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/LWA3YDHDFXIYL3J64NLILU6YBM Jello

    Hindi naman nakakataas ng pagkatao ng mga hackers ang ginawa nila. pagnanakaw parin ang tawag dun. Mas nakakahiya ang ginagawa nila.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/KKKAP3ZYXRTVYJZVNSGBYXJSUU Greg

    This proves na kailangan natin ng cybercrime law dahil yung mga hackers wala silang magawa sa buhay nila kaya pati privacy ninanakaw.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/LWA3YDHDFXIYL3J64NLILU6YBM Jello

      At mali na gagawin ng mga hackers ang gusto nila kahit hindi na tama.

    • Dennis

      We really need cybercrime law. We need to be protected from these hackers.

      kagagawan lang din naman ng mga hindi walang laman ang utak na hindi kayang lumaban ng patas! 

      • Dennis

        Talagang hindi patas dahil masamang gawain ang paghahack.

  • maypakialamako
