Hacker posts on Facebook Aquino’s ‘mobile numbers’

MANILA, Philippines—A Filipino hacker has posted online what he claimed to be President Benigno Aquino’s personal mobile telephone numbers, with Palace spokesman Saturday denouncing the act as “cyber vandalism”.

President spokesman Ricky Carandang would not confirm if the numbers were really the president’s, or if their release on the worldwide web had compromised the leader’s personal security or state secrets.

“It’s cyber vandalism plain and simple,” Carandang told Agence Fraqnce-Presse.

“We’re dealing with it. That’s all I can say for now.”

The three “Personal Mobile Number(s)” were posted late Friday on the Facebook site of a user named “#pR.is0n3r”.

The site owner urged his followers, who numbered more than 9,400 as of Saturday, to communicate directly with their President.

Two of the three phone numbers were apparently no longer working on Saturday afternoon when dialled by INQUIRER.net.

“The majority are not getting answers to so many issues. It is difficult to speak to a person through go-betweens. If we send him a letter we’re not even sure he will receive it,” the user wrote in Filipino.

The author said he belonged to the hacker group “Anonymous Philippines”, which has vandalized a number of government websites in the past.

The Facebook post was also linked to a Twitter micro-blog site with the same user name.

      Una, para mapagusapan lang si Kulot at madivert ang attention ng mga filipino o malimutan yong mahahalagang isyu gaya ng pagbagsak ng ekonomiya lalo. Pangalawa, gusto lang magkatextmate dahil KSP at nagsasawa na yata sa kalalaro ng PSP. Gusto namang pagkaabalahan yang smartphone nya as if smart siya…hahahaha

    Who would ever try to call a president? They are out of touch, if you’re lucky a secretary may answer your call. All I know is it’s impossible to actually ring a president of any country, unless someone influential or politically close to that leader eg. relatives,cabinet members, mistresses and etc. What a waste of time.

    • Renato Isla

      if anybody is free to call the President, busy signal din ang makukuha..kung email naman ay malamang spam or magkaroon ng denial of service. The president of any country can not micro manage each of the constituents’ problems. Kung mangyari man e malamang pa-epal lang tulad ni Mang Pandoy ni GMA..or yung ilang scholars daw niya. Kung 10 million na Mang Pandoy ang tinulungan ni GMA e malamang bankrupt na ang bayan.
